MLGW’s Water System Scores 99% on State Inspection of Public Drinking Water
October 12, 2020
Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division received a score of 99 percent on a sanitary survey of its water system by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).

“I am very proud of the team and the great work that they do every day to ensure our drinking water is of the best quality,” said Nicholas Newman, Vice President of Engineering and Operations. “This great score shows their dedication. “

According to TDEC, a sanitary survey is an unannounced onsite evaluation and documentation of a water system’s capabilities, operations, sources, facilities, treatment process, equipment, distribution network, monitoring, reporting and data verification, pump facilities, controls and overall management to continually provide safe drinking water.

The TDEC survey is conducted once every two years; the latest survey took place from September 8 – 22. MLGW’s previous score was also 99 percent.

The 2020 survey noted no significant deficiencies and MLGW’s water supply system was placed among the state’s “approved” water supplies.
