Blue Granite Water Company Investing $6.1 Million in Upgrades

Blue Granite Water Company is addressing critical water and wastewater investments to upgrade the local water and wastewater systems. Approximately $6.1 million of investment is underway including over 12,900 feet of sewer main installation.

Don Denton, President of Blue Granite Water Company, said, “While much of the country’s water and wastewater systems often go unnoticed, they deliver life-sustaining and public health support every single day. These systems are aging and need continuous investment to avoid crisis situations like we’ve seen in communities where investment needs are ignored. At Blue Granite Water Company we work hard to upgrade our local systems so our customers can continue to trust the service we deliver now and in the future. Our customers support these important investments by paying their bill.”

According to Denton, investments include, among others, the following:

- Rehabilitating the Forty Love Point wastewater collection system to address inflow & infiltration and backup issues.

- Rehabilitating the Friarsgate wastewater collection system to address inflow & infiltration and backup issues.

- Designing a new wastewater treatment plant for the Oakland Plantation service area.

Rob Powelson, President and CEO of National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) said, “Communities nationwide are facing massive fiscal challenges to replace water and wastewater infrastructure and effectively manage their systems. Water-related services are extremely capital intensive – more so than electric, natural gas and telecom – which is why it is important water companies take a proactive investment strategy to ensure our country’s water future. We commend Blue Granite Water Company for their continued focus on investment that goes a long way toward ensuring safety and reliability.”
