Natural Gas

Charlie Bales, Gas Superintendent

Eatonton  provides natural gas service in Putnam and Jones counties. Our employees in the natural gas crew are all trained and certified in accordance with Georgia Public Service Commission regulations. The Gas Department is located on New Glenwood Springs Road.

Gas is a commodity that is bought through a cooperative called the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia. Together with dozens of other communities, the City of Eatonton purchases natural gas in such great quantities that the prices remain affordably low while others see skyrocketing natural gas bills. As a commodity, the gas is bought on the open market. No set price is established on a per monthly basis for gas service except for a minimum bill charge  of $8.00, which will include the first 200 cubic feet of gas used, generally enough to keep a pilot light burning on an efficient gas water heater. New customer accounts may be set up at City Hall.

If you need to report a gas leak, please call City Hall at 706-485-3311. For after hours assistance and emergencies, please call the Eatonton Police Department at 706-485-3551.

Water & Sewer

Fresh Water and Wastewater treatment has now been combined with Putnam County to become the Eatonton-Putnam Water and Sewer Authority.  They are located at 663 Godfrey Road and can be reached at 706-485-5252.
