Our utility subsidiaries own and operate regulated water and wastewater systems serving over half a million residential and business customers in seven states: Alabama, California, Florida, Louisiana, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas. Customer rates, service, and water quality are generally regulated by state agencies.
We’re an American-owned company with nationwide resources and local management and decision making. The people we serve expect and get our full commitment. Every day, our state-certified water and wastewater technicians pump and treat millions of gallons of water into hundreds of communities.
SouthWest Water Company enjoys the benefits of experienced leadership and management teams, with in-house professional engineering and quality control. We also have extensive construction and project management experience and expertise. Our company is also known for its world-class customer service and operational metrics.
We help communities struggling with utility management challenges and system performance to deliver the best quality water possible. We have experience in virtually every aspect of water and wastewater system operation.
Our focus on water is the entire cycle of water (from its point of origin through transporting, treating, distributing and recycling) and its repeated uses, and we take pride in this stewardship.
With managing water and wastewater treatment, we understand the responsibility of providing water instantly, ensuring water is safe and meets all federal and state health guidelines. An equal emphasis is placed on our treatment of wastewater so it may be safely returned to the environment for reuse.
We all take pride in the jobs we do to assist in the ultimate job of providing safe and reliable water and producing clean water to return back to the environment through our wastewater services. With that pride comes empowerment, we want our customers feel heard and at the same time feel empowered with knowledge about their water and all that goes into providing great service here at SouthWest Water.
