MS Department of Health Rating - A Perfect 5.0
Adams County Water Association has received a perfect 5.0 rating on all three systems from the Mississippi Department of Health on this year's Capacity Assessment. Systems are inspected in three catagories - technical, managerial and financial.

All 1,400 water systems in the state are inspected annually and given a "report card" graded from 0 to 5.0. Very few water companies have been awarded the perfect 5.0 rating for more than 10 consecutive years. Adams County Water is pleased to be one of the few.

We have achieved this level of accountability with 13 full time employees. Our responsibility for providing this vital service is taken seriously. The Board of Trustees, management and staff work together with a common goal in mind - to provide the best possible service at affordable rates.
