We've moved: Water Utilities Service Center now open

The Water Utilities Service Center, located at 1200 SE Hamblen Road, is open for business. The 38,000 square-foot building consolidates the entire Water Utilities staff of more than 50 employees to a single facility.

 “For the first time in modern history, all functions of the Water Utilities Department will be consolidated and housed at one location. This new building will centralize our staff and services and increase our operational effectiveness, which means better service for current and future customers,” said Mark Schaufler, Director of Water Utilities.  “In addition, as a result of careful planning and at the suggestion of the 2011 Strategic planning group, this project was completely cash funded, meaning no debt had to be issued to fund the project.
