An act of the Georgia General Assembly created the Franklin-Heard County Water Authority on February 6, 1984. This act was amended to change the name of the Authority to the Heard County Water Authority was approved March 22, 1989. The Heard County Water Authority is not a department of the Heard County but an independent authority. The five person Board is comprised of two members appointed by the City of Franklin, two appointed by the Heard County Board of Commissioners, and one member is elected by the four current HCWA Board members. The Board serves for 4 years and the terms are staggered. The reason behind utility authorities being created by the State of Georgia Legislature was to keep local politics out of the decision making process for rates and other matter with regard to the operation of a utility.
