  1. Serenbe Palmetto, GA Case Study

  2. Project Summary Location: Palmetto, Georgia Acreage: 900 Units:Approx. 165 residential units, 115 Live/work units, 6 Commercial units Product Type:Smart Growth community with interconnected, variably-sized settlements, including small villages, hamlets and farmsteads. Master Plan:Two (2) distinct Hamlets (i.e. stand-alone communities), each arranged in an Omega design with 140 residential and commercial units Topography: Gently rolling Soil: Sandy loam

  3. Phase I. Summary Selborne Community Units:140 units, including approximately 50 live/work and 4 commercial Home Prices:$150,000 to over $1 million Absorption Rate:3-4 years

  4. Project Considerations • Municipal sewer service was not available • Community was planned with environmental sustainability as a top priority • Highest and best use achieved through clustered development with substantial open space • Minimize upfront capital investment, and spread cost over life of project. • Maximize economic return by providing project design flexibility; offering multiple products and price points. • Solution must provide for professional operation, maintenance and customer service

  5. Solution • Turnkey decentralized wastewater system • Design • Build • Operate • Collection System • Individual septic tanks with gravity collection • Treatment • Recirculating Sand/Gravel Filter combined with a Constructed Wetland • Disposal • Subsurface Drip Irrigation

  6. Ownership & Management • Once system is constructed and approved, ownership is transferred to Utility as “Contribution In-Aid” (non-taxable transaction). • Utility will own, operate and maintain system in perpetuity. (including individual and central system components ) • Utility is certified as wastewater system operator by the State of Georgia Department of Public Health? • Utility provides performance bond to the State Health Department and evidence of financial viability to the Public Service Commission

  7. Developer Benefits • Turn-key solution • Minimize upfront capital cost • Maximize development design flexibility • Utility company assumes operational liability • State of Georgia monitors system performance and financial viability of Utility • Ability to re-use treated effluent for community irrigation • Proven technology
