HEY SANTA, GUESS WHO ELSE IS

WORKING ON THE HOLIDAY?

Mount Pleasant Waterworks’ Employees Keep the Clean Water Flowing and the Toilets Flushing

 

Mount Pleasant, S.C.  - - December 23, 2014 – (Mount Pleasant, SC)  While Santa is busy delivering gifts for under the tree this holiday, his “elves” working for Mount Pleasant Waterworks will be spending time away from their families to deliver something even more valuable - safe drinking water and responsible wastewater management.

 

Although most customers don’t realize it, working on holidays is part of the job for water and wastewater professionals because producing and delivering safe drinking water and treating wastewater goes on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Treatment plant staff often spend the day alone monitoring operations, while maintenance crews are on-call to respond to water main breaks and wastewater backups.  Employees of Mount Pleasant Waterworks are proud to serve their neighbors and recognize that sacrificing time away from their families comes with the territory. 

“No one wants to wake up Christmas morning without safe clean water,” said Clay Duffie, General Manager.  “And even Scrooge wouldn’t wish the ‘gift’ of not being able to flush on anyone.”

Mount Pleasant Waterworks has a staff of 113 water and wastewater professionals operating treatment facilities, maintaining distribution and collection systems, and performing dozens of other critical functions that directly contribute to quality of life in the local community.

“It takes training and dedication to perform the jobs these men and women take so seriously,” said Rick Crosby, Commission Chair.  “We could not be prouder of their service, and we value their willingness to spend their holiday protecting public health.”
