Our two water treatment facilities have been recognized as Optimized Plants by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management or ADEM, meaning they consistently maintain treatment standards that are over and above those required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and ADEM, providing an extra level of protection for public health.
MAWSS conducts water treatment facility tours for school groups during regular business hours. These tours require walking outdoors, walking over catwalks and navigating some ladders. Slacks are suggested for girls. Closed toe shoes are required.
