Providing water is an inexpensive process
Water goes through a rigorous process before it can be used by the general public: Pumping, cleaning, filtering, pressurizing, distributing and delivering all happens before you receive one drop. In order for that process to happen, the water travels through hundreds of miles of underground pipes, valves, treatment plants, tanks and other equipment. Over 35 Anderson employees manage this robust water infrastructure to provide safe and clean water for our community.
Our water will always be available
Deterioration, repairs and upgrades are part of every day life for any physical item from clothes to cars to buildings. Over time materials simply wear out and need to be either fixed, repaired or all together replaced. Our water supply infrastructure is no different. It is easy to dismiss the problems we are facing underground in our piping and at our treatment plants because they are not right in our face, and for now, we are able to access water with seemingly no difficulty.
But the fact is, capital improvements are urgently needed to correct our water infrastructure and avoid an inevitable failure with our current deteriorating system.
