Department Description

The Utilities Department utilizes in-house forces for the majority of its’ operation consisting of highly trained and state licensed water and wastewater operators who maintain and operate the Town’s two water plants, one wastewater plant, and one water reclamation facility. Additionally, the Department requires its field technicians to obtain licenses and/or certifications in water distribution and wastewater collection systems, which enhances their knowledge of repair and maintenance of the water and sewer pipe lines and 59 wastewater pump stations throughout the Town’s 10,000+ residential and commercial accounts. Our water and wastewater plants are staffed by State licensed operators 24 hours a day. This staffing arrangement allows residents to report emergency situations during evenings and weekends and receive timely assistance should the problem warrant such action.
