According to public health and JCWSA officials, Authority customers can have the peace of mind knowing their drinking water is not a source of Coronavirus or COVID-19 and the virus has not been detected in drinking water supplies. The JCWSA uses the disinfectant chlorine during water treatment processes, in addition to filtering, before distributing finished drinking water to its customers. The COVID-19 virus is particularly susceptible to chlorine. 

The disinfection and filtration processes are controlled and monitored continuously at the Bear Creek Water Treatment Plant. 
Jackson County Water & Sewerage Authority will suspend disconnection of service due to' non­payment until further notice. JCWSA officials want to make sure all JCWSA customers have continuous safe and reliable water and sewer services, independent of their account status. 
In addition, the JCWSA offices will be closed to the public until further notice. Customers may leave payments in the outside drop box or pay online at https://www.jcwsa.com. Payments may also be made by phone at (855) 383-1792. New service contracts are available at the main office entry at 117 MLK Avenue, Jefferson, GA. For any additional questions or concerns, please call customer service at (706) 367-1741.



Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, our offices will be closed to the public through April 10th.  Please leave payments in the drop box to your right or pay online via our website at www.jcwsa.com. Payments may also be made by phone at (855) 383-1792.
