Water wells score high with Health Department
PEARL RIVER COUNTY — According to Los Angeles-based SouthWest Water Company, the Mississippi State Department of Health awarded high scores to three wells the company operates for the Pearl River County Utility Authority (PRCUA). The PRCUA coordinates the delivery of water, wastewater and storm water services for residents of Pearl River County.
The newly commissioned Poplarville water well scored 4.7 points out of possible five, and the City of Picayune’s Westchester and Timberlane/Virginia Manor water wells at Dixie Utilities both received a rating of four. Prior to SouthWest Water taking over operations of these wells in 2008, they had earned low ratings on the state’s inspections, Southwest Water said.
“SouthWest Water’s hard work has greatly improved our systems,” said PRCUA operations manager Cliff Diamond. “Their emergency response time has been excellent, and the Authority is pleased with the professional service and commitment they have shown us.”
