Massanutten Public Service Corporation is addressing critical water and wastewater investments to upgrade the local water and wastewater systems. This year, Massanutten Public Service Corporation is investing approximately $800,000.
Seth Whitney, Senior Vice President at Massanutten Public Service Corporation, 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 Massanutten Public Service Corporation 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 Whitney, investments in the local water and wastewater systems include, among others, the following:
- Replacing approximately 2,000 linear feet of water main in areas known to experience main breaks.
- Upgrading water treatment plant and wastewater treatment plant security and monitoring.
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 Massanutten Public Service Corporation for their continued focus on investment that goes a long way toward ensuring safety and reliability.”
