Veolia and The Fulton County Board of Commissioners have renewed their partnership for Veolia to continue operating, maintaining and managing the county's wastewater facilities. The agreement is for five years and is valued at $60 million; it covers a combined treatment capacity of 40 million gallons of wastewater per day.
