Investing in Your Utility

We're committed (and obligated by regulators) to invest in older systems to bring them up to modern standards, and maintaining all systems in optimal operating condition through upgrade and replacement programs. 

Even the smallest utility systems require significant investments. But unlike other public infrastructure — roads, bridges, airports, transit, etc. — most water and wastewater infrastructure is never seen, yet we rely on it 24/7. Learn more about how utility systems work.
