Infrastructure Work

Our water systems – underground, out of sight and out of mind – work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to bring reliable, high-quality water to the region. We invest millions of dollars annually in infrastructure improvement projects to upgrade our water systems to provide high-quality drinking water for our customers’ everyday needs and ensure a sufficient water supply for firefighters.

This work is seasonal and typically takes place April through November across our district.
