We are very proud that our client, Bear Creek Water Association, has been named 2017 Water Distribution System of the Year. Here is what was said in a recent article in the Madison County Journal:
Bear Creek Water Association has again earned the maximum score of 5.0/5.0 from the Mississippi State Department of Health for the drinking water supply, officials announced last week.
“The Mississippi State Department of Health conducts a yearly inspection, and gives a score based on several criteria,” Bear Creek Water Association General Manager Nolan Williamson said. "The three categories are technical, managerial, and financial. We are pleased that we have received the maximum score of 5.0 in all three categories.
"Our board of directors has worked very hard to make sure we stay financially sound, and our staff of licensed water operators makes sure all of our sampling, testing, and compliance is monitored per the regulatory requirements,” he continued. "And the State Department of Health staff is helpful in providing any necessary guidance. Our goal is to provide the safest drinking water that we possibly can to our customers.”
Bear Creek Water Association provides water service to portions of the City of Canton, City of Madison, City of Ridgeland, and unincorporated areas of south Madison County. Bear Creek Water Association was named the Mississippi Water Distribution System of the Year for both 2015 and 2016 by the American Water Works Association. Bear Creek Water Association employee Jill Vaughn was named the Mississippi Water Operator of the Year for 2015.
