    City of Ocean Springs Receives a Perfect Score for Water System

     

    Ocean Springs, MS— The Mississippi Department of Health, Division of Water Supply performed its annual inspection of the City of Ocean Springs’s water system. For the 13th consecutive year, the city has received a perfect 5.0 rating.

     

    "This 5.0 rating is a prime example of the City's water department personnel and Board of Aldermen working together for the benefit of our citizens,” said Public Works Director Johnny Groue. "It is a well-deserved accolade that is not easily obtained nor taken for granted."

     

    The inspection is based on 3 categories; Technical, Managerial, and Financial. This report is a source of extreme pride for the City’s water department, including the Water Billing Department, as they work hard to maintain the longest running, highest rated water system in the state.
