Utility Regulation and Training Meeting in Bay St. Louis
Your power, water, telecommunications and sewer are all controlled by the same people. The state of Mississippi wants to make sure they are supervised correctly.
That’s why the Public Service Commission held its fourth annual Utility Regulation and Training Meeting in Bay St. Louis. The PSC breaks the state into three districts. The Coast’s southern district is headed by Sam Britton.
Britton tells News 25 the commission is set up to protect the consumer and trainings like today ensure that happens. “There’s over 1,000 utility water districts throughout this state, close to 300 in the southern district. Now, whenever people talk about there’s laws and rules and you want good water quality, that’s a lot of what’s going on today. You’re communicating what the Public Service Commission does and the people that actually run those water associations. It’s making sure people have good communication and they work together.”
Britton went on to say he hopes everyone attending will share their knowledge with their public service peers.
