PUBLIC USE AREAS
The public use areas of the Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) continue to be well received by customers, local residents and businesses. With the opening of Tussahaw Island in May of 2010, the HCWA has another public use area with great potential for outdoor education and recreation.
Tussahaw Island, located on Collins Way just off of Peeksville Road, has boat ramps for anglers seeking to fish the reservoir, one of which adjoins a fishing pier that is accessible to citizens with disabilities. Note: Tussahaw Island is NOT accessible via the Tussahaw Water Treatment Plant.
In addition, Tussahaw Island has plentiful parking and a walking trail around its perimeter, which was built with the help of aspiring local Eagle Scouts and other volunteers.
