Harrison County Utility Authority earns perfect scores for clean water quality
In their annual review of water systems around the state, the Mississippi State Department of Health gave all four public water systems operated by the Harrison County Utility Authority perfect scores.
They received these scores for providing clean and high-quality drinking water to its cities and their residents.
The three categories of the MSDH inspection include technical capacity, managerial capacity, and financial capacity with a 5.0 being the highest possible score for each category. HCUA Executive Director John Wilson said, “Our water operators are out there on a daily basis, doing all the checks, and all the maintenance and all the operations things they need to, through Zeta, through COVID, through the whole bit as essential workers. So, we just really want to congratulate them on a job well done.”
All four systems under the watch of HCUA received perfect 5.0 scores in the 2021 fiscal year which is the fourth-straight year the utility authority has received perfect scores for all systems.
