Cleveland Utilities Water System earned a perfect score on the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Sanitary Survey, which reaffirms CU as an “approved” water system.  This makes the fourth consecutive year CU has achieved a perfect score.

The sanitary survey is an evaluation and documentation of the water system’s capabilities, operations, sources, facilities, treatment processes, equipment, distribution network, monitoring, reporting and data verification, pump facilities, controls and overall management needed to continually provide safe drinking water.  It is extensive and comprises 599 possible points. This survey covered the time period from December 2018 to October 2020. 

“Achieving a perfect score is extremely difficult,” said Tim Henderson, CU President/CEO. “This rating is a testament to the dedication, professionalism and expertise of all the employees involved in this endeavor. I am extremely proud of the entire team and the way they serve our community with excellence.”
