For the third year in a row, the City of Vicksburg has received the 2021 Water Treatment Plant of the Year Award from the American Water Works Association. Overall water quality, plant improvements, energy efficiency and regulatory conformance were cited as criteria for the selection.
“Having the best water treatment plant in the State of Mississippi for three years in a row just goes to show that Vicksburg is on the move like never before,” said Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. “Our philosophy is to provide the best quality service at the least cost to the taxpayers. Today, we’re continuing to deliver on that promise.”
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen hired ESG Operations, Inc. in 2016 to manage and operate the city’s water treatment plant on Haining Road. The plant has received a five-star rating from the State Department of Health for the past five years and has been in 100% compliance with all regulatory agencies.
