Latest Achievement: Bachelor of Psychology

Mrs. Angela Walker recently graduated from Liberty University with a Bachelor of Psychology. The field of psychology is designed to teach students a deeper understanding of human behavior and mind. A degree in psychology proves Mrs. Angela has specialized knowledge in problem solving and an understanding of human interaction. These type of skills are universal and can be applied in almost any job environment. Out in the field, Mrs. Walker comes into contact with the public, businesses and organizations of the Golden Isles daily, her new degree in psychology fortifies that she knows how to interact with them. BGJWSC recognizes and congratulates Mrs. Angela Walker on her latest achievement in higher education.

The BGJWSC is honored to have had Mrs. Angela Walker working as our Wastewater Pretreatment Compliance Coordinator over the past couple years. Mrs. Walker holds the sole responsibility of conducting BGJWSC’s regulatory compliance inspections, monitoring enforcement, keeping records and reporting on these situations. She is the first line of defense against unwanted materials and substances that could damage the sewer systems of Brunswick, GA. Along with her family, Mrs. Walker, moved to the Golden Isles in 2014 for the opportunity to work with the BGJWSC and remains a dedicated, hardworking employee. She has worked in wastewater treatment systems for nearly 20 years, and has obtained multiple licenses in the state of Georgia, showing how well experienced she is even before obtaining her degree.

She is also responsible for the BGJWSC Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) program. The FOG program is a major key in pretreatment methods between harmful substances and the sewer system. Fats, oils and grease are extremely destructive to the systems we depend on for fresh water and sewer services. The program prevents these substances from seeping into our system by establishing FOG regulations on businesses. Mrs. Walker works every day to enforce these regulations, issue permits and perform inspections to keep our community clean and the water flowing.

Mrs. Walker has already began continuing her pursuit of knowledge. She has enrolled in the Master’s Program at Troy University, pursuing a Master of Environmental Policy. She intends to use this degree to help the Golden Isles enforce water regulations throughout the area and control public policy. BGJWSC is proud to have the chance to help Mrs. Walker on her new journey to better herself and the Golden Isles.
