Valuable Community Service

Day-to-Day Operation

Water and sewer service is a critical service for any community. The Distribution and Collection (D & C) Department is the front line in the day-to-day operation and maintenance of these assets. They work in all weather, and at all hours to achieve the goal of uninterrupted service to our customers. 


Water and sewer lines are buried underground, so the work done isn’t visible. The condition of the pipes aren't visible. Blockages in sewer mains aren’t known until something backs up somewhere. 


The work done by the D & C Department is both reactive when something goes wrong, and proactive, by anticipating problems before they happen.
