Utilities

Electricity

Electricity is distributed to Montgomery and vicinity by two utilities; Alabama Power Company and PowerSouth Energy Cooperative. Alabama Power is an investor-owned affiliate of the Southern Company, while PowerSouth is a generation and transmission cooperative that provides the wholesale power needs of 20 distribution members.. Alabama territorial regulations set forth service area for power loads under 2,500 kilowatts; over 2,500 kilowatts, new loads become competitive. 

Gas

The Alabama Gas Corporation provides natural gas to consumers in the Montgomery area. Service is available to industrial customers either on a firm or interruptible basis. While Alabama Gas Corporation owns significant intrastate gas reserves, principal supplies are furnished via Southern Natural Resources.

Water

The Water Works and Sanitary Sewer Board of the City of Montgomery supplies water to the area. The major surface water supply is the Tallapoosa River augmented by large underground quantities of water. The purification plant has a capacity of 45 million gallons per day (mgd). Forty-five wells provide additional capacity of 31.8 mgd giving Montgomery a total capacity at present of 56.8 mgd. Average daily consumption is approximately 36 mgd. Pressure averages 50 PSI.

Maximum Daily Capacity: 77 MGD

Average Daily Consumption: 36 MGD 

Sanitation

Sanitary Sewer is collected and treated by the Water Works and Sanitary Sewer Board of the City of Montgomery in three water pollution control plants providing complete primary and secondary treatment using primary filters, biological trickling filters, synthetic biofilters, or activated sludge and secondary filtration. The effluent is dispersed into the Alabama River.

Maximum Daily Capacity: 59 MGD

Average Daily Consumption: 39 MGD

Telecommunications

A large investment has been made by AT&T and other major telecommunications companies in the Montgomery area telecommunications technology network including digital switching, fiber optics, "Self-Healing Architecture", Integrated Services Digital Network and Synchronous Optical Networks which will support Asynchronous Transmission Mode Service. TV cable services are offered by Charter Communications and Knology.
