To EWSC Members,
As most of you know this past Sunday, August 18th proved to be quite eventful as far as electrical power is concerned. Most of east Texas experienced power surges while some even lost power completely. We at EWSC are pleased to announce that improvements made with our generators at two of our plants allowed us to maintain steady power and provide smooth service for our customers. While we did experience interference with our automated control system, our staff received alerts and were able to make necessary and timely adjustments to maintain water service.
We are continuously working to improve our system to ensure that we are ready for emergencies in order to provide safe drinking water to our members.
