"Clean, safe, reliable and affordable. The service we provide does not simply make life more comfortable or more enjoyable; it makes LIFE POSSIBLE. Without water, we could not survive. With it, we can improve lives and communities. Water helps to nourish and refresh us, grow our food, keep us clean and healthy and protect our homes from fire. The one thing we can never do is take water for granted."
