Safety

It takes a lot to maintain a water and wastewater system. That's why you may have seen a CEA crew out by the side of the road digging up lines, installing a new water valve, or maybe just checking a pump station. We try our best to stay safe when out on the roads. And we hope that you can help us too by maintaining slow speeds when passing by and keeping a watch out for our crews.
