Security and Safety



After 9/11 our country was shaken to its core. Life as we knew it drastically changed and our sense of security was shattered. Now more than ever, Americans are bound together by a common goal – PROTECT OUR OWN. While our country has and continues to regain a sense of security, WE MUST remain just as vigilant at the local level.

Like public utilities across the nation, Columbus Water Works’ (CWW) duty is not only to provide water and wastewater services to our customers but also to protect the critical infrastructure. CWW has implemented numerous security and safety procedures and measures for our operations and Muscogee County residents can assist in this effort.

We all must be vigilant and report any suspicious scenes or behavior. Reporting such observances enhances overall security and helps provide a safe environment. Even if something doesn’t seem that significant, it’s important to report it. This utility is involved in the Muscogee County Critical Infrastructure Protection Task Force. The sole purpose of this group is to evaluate all reports, analyze the information and act appropriately.
