Neither the Drinking Water Treatment Plant nor Water Reclamation Facility is equipped to handle large groups for lunch. However, both facilities are only a short drive to Athens-Clarke County parks offering picnic areas. Memorial Park is a good choice for those visiting the Drinking Water Treatment Plant. Please contact 706-613-3580 to reserve a pavilion. For those who tour the Water Reclamation Facility, Southeast Clarke Park's World of Wonder Playground offers a conveniently located pavilion for groups to eat. Please contact 706-613-3871. Both parks request at least two weeks advance notice if you plan to bring a large group for lunch.

Through funding raised by Athens-Clarke County Green School Programs, assistance is available for transportation costs to our sites for Athens-Clarke County schools. The financial assistance applies to costs associated with a bus driver's hours and mileage from the bus depot to school, school to our site, site to your school, and school to bus depot. We cannot assist with costs incurred for additional mileage or bus driver hours if the school group visits other locations (e.g. visit a park for lunch). Please contact the Water Conservation Office for more details. A copy of the transportation invoice received by the individual Athens-Clarke County School should be sent to the ACC Water Conservation Office, 124 E. Hancock Ave, Athens, GA 30601 to receive assistance following the field trip.
