The Giles County Public Service Authority (PSA) is a separate governmental entity from the County of Giles and is not funded by tax dollars. The Giles County Board of Supervisors passed a solid waste ordinance in 1992 that states that every residence in Giles County will pay a solid waste bill. The PSA acts as an administrator/contractor for the County and their ordinance. The PSA has over 6,500 solid waste customers, but only has 6 water customers. The normal office hours for the PSA are 8:00am – 5:00pm Monday through Friday.

Giles County Public Service Authority wholesales water to all five incorporated Towns and to the County Residents who are hooked to the County’s system. This is a regionalized system, linking all the Towns and the County’s systems. Each of the Towns and the County retail water to their respective customers. Currently all of the water comes from wells. The PSA’s primary source is connected to a membrane filtration plant, which was built in the fall of 1999.
