The 2018 Annual Report "Water- the fuel of life"

ar coverColumbus Water Works (CWW) is proud to share our annual report for 2018 “Water- the fuel of life.” Our 2018 Annual Report highlights our accomplishments and our commitment to our regional community. The report provides information on the crucial role CWW’s infrastructure plays in our community, an update on our environmental programs, our community partnerships, and a financial summary. Below you will find a short preview of the information in our 2018 Annual Report.

Our Community’s Veins – Infrastructure
The report starts with infrastructure- the veins of our community. CWW’s infrastructure plays a critical role in our city’s public health, safety, and economic well-being.  Additionally, our capital improvement plan, Automated Meteri Reading (AMR), and preventative maintenance programs allow us to maintain high-quality customer service levels at a competitive cost- ranking among the lowest in the region.

Our Community’s Vitality – Environment
Following infrastructure, we discuss the impact our environmental programs have on the community. Columbus Water Works is proud to have received two significant awards in 2018 which recognized our environmental protection programs. These programs include our Watershed Stewardship program and our Fats, Oil, and Grease (FOG) recycling program. The Watershed Stewardship program has improved the water and wildlife quality of 20 creeks in our community, and the FOG program continues to grow. We also achieved a rare accomplishment, by having the “Whitewater” section of the Chattahoochee River delisted from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) list of streams impaired by bacteria.

Our Community’s Heart - Partnerships

united wayBeing a part of the community we serve is a responsibility we value. We have pledged a strong commitment to our customers and the community. We work with schools; community groups, environmental groups, and non-profit organizations on projects that help educate and protect the environment. Organizations we work with include the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, Help the Hooch, Richards Middle School, and House of Heroes.
