Most days, we spend our time helping out business owners and homeowners, literally in the trenches trying to fix water and sewer main problems. It is not always a glamorous job, but, once in a while, someone comes along and recognizes the work we are doing. We try to go above and beyond in the work that we do, and that is why we were thrilled to hear we were the recipient of Energi’s 2016 Risk Management Award.
