The Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water and Sewer Commission is expected this week to consider approval of a five-year expansion plan and discuss discharge from the Academy Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Utility Executive Director Jimmy Junkin introduced the five-year plan at the utility’s last regular meeting Feb. 1. It detailed what he believes the utility needs to accomplish, and what it realistically can over the next five years with its current income. It was not formally adopted at the last meeting.

The commission will also discuss discharge from the Academy Creek plant. Major renovations to the plant have been in the works since last year. Junkin proposed a plan at a previous meeting that would convert the process of breaking down wastewater used at the plant to a more efficient process. Commissioners have at multiple meetings gone back and forth over how far to go with renovations.

The JWSC’s next meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday in the utility’s offices, 1703 Gloucester St. in Brunswick.
