Florence Clean-up

Many thanks to all of you who turned off your customer valve prior to evacuating the island! You helped preserve the integrity of our water system, as well as prevented water loss from potential storm damage leakage. Our water production and storage facilities are fully powered and restored so we are "business as usual" for your water needs!

We are still waiting for the flood waters in some areas to recede so we can access our water lines there. If you are in one of those areas, and find a water problem after the water recedes, please call our office so we can send someone out to assist you!

Our office is also fully restored with telephone and internet service back. We have missed them! Thank you so much for all of your patience and help!

When he did it, he was shocked at what he found. 'Eight point three billion metric tons of plastics produced so far. That's just really a staggering amount.' He did some calculations to understand that number. 'And it turned out that it can cover an area the size of Argentina,' he says, 'which is the eighth-largest country in the world.'
