Key Performance Indicators

We are measuring the percentage of days that the treated effluent from all of the wastewater treatment facilities meets or exceeds the standards set forth in the permit.

The number of aircraft operations, each take-off or landing is considered one operation, is tracked by both the FAA control tower and Fulton County staff and is indicator of how much the airport is being used.

This KPI is measured by locating all water valves and fire hydrants within a 5 year period. Once located, the correct coordinates are digitized into GIS and the valves tested to ensure their proper operation.

Inspect all sanitary sewer lines within a 5 year period to identify any failed, cracked, or broken collection pipes that would lead to a sanitary spill.

Surveys are collected via telephone to customers, upon completion of work order. Survey consists of 6 questions that ranks the level of customer satisfaction based on scale of 1 (least satisfied) to 5 (most satisfied)
