Oh we're not done yet! We cannot wrap up National Public Works Week without thanking our 6 dedicated Water and Wastewater Operators for being the definition of Ready and Resilient! It takes a lot of work to get water from natural sources into our taps. Similarly, it is a complicated process to convert the wastewater in our drains and sewers into a form that is safe to release into the environment.
