Celebrate With Us

With a proud history dating back to 1886, you can bet we have a lot to celebrate in this special anniversary year. We invite you to join us!

This 125-year milestone is an excellent opportunity to honor some of the people and accomplishments that have contributed to our success. It's also a good time to come together with others who care about water and share experiences, information and educational resources.

Here's how you can join the celebration:
Test Your Water IQ, meet our official mascot Puddles the Duck, and find out about 125th anniversary-related events in your area.

This celebration is for all of our customers, partners, professionals and communities, so we want to know about the American Traditions that are important to you. Tell us or show us here. Do you have some creative ways to help conserve water? Send us a video to share with others.

There is no time like the present to reach for the tap instead of a disposable water bottle. 85% of plastic bottles end up in landfills. It takes 1,000 years for the average plastic bottle to biodegrade. Pledge allegiance to the tap and help make a difference for the environment.

We're celebrating this important milestone the same way as we celebrate every year of service to our customers: by providing high-quality and reliable water and wastewater service.

Thanks for celebrating with us! We look forward to hearing from you.
