The Engineering staff provides a water/sewer availability letter for developers inquiring about available capacity for water and/or sewer. Information on fire flows must accompany the application that a developer must complete to obtain written confirmation of availability. HCWA performs fire flow evaluations to estimate and assure that adequate fire flow protection is available in the impacted area of the distribution system.

The National Pretreatment Program was established by Section 307 of the Clean Water Act primarily to control pollutant loadings from industrial sources and prevent their interference with the operation of publicly owned treatment works.
In Georgia, the Environmental Protection Division (EPD) of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), operating under rule 301-3-6-.08, has been delegated the authority by the Environmental Protection Agency to administer local pretreatment programs found in 40 CFR Park 403.
The Henry County Water Authority works to protect the local receiving waters by regulating industrial wastewater discharge to the Authority's sewer system and by administering and enforcing federal EPA pretreatment guidelines.
HCWA Engineering Division charges a permit fee for the plan review and subsequent site inspection of water distribution, watershed protection and sanitary sewerage systems. These services are for newly installed water lines, sanitary sewer lines, force mains, lift-stations, and appurtenances for new developments.
To obtain plan review, inspection of proposed infrastructure, or related Engineering services of the HCWA, local developers must pay the appropriate permit fees, which vary according to the size and scope of the development.
Approved plans and a pre-construction conference with HCWA's Engineering staff are required prior to the installation of any proposed lines that are to be dedicated to the HCWA system.
HCWA requires one copy of plans for original submittal. One copy is typically required for final approval. Projects within other jurisdictions, which require services from HCWA, are required to submit plans separately to HCWA.
