The City of Ridgeland has again earned the maximum score of 5 from the Mississippi State Department of Health for the city’s drinking water supply according to an inspection conducted Oct. 27, 2015. Ridgeland earned 5.0 out of 5.0 for its overall capacity rating and for technical, managerial and financial inspections. The City of Ridgeland seeks to provide a safe and dependable supply of drinking water, and staff work consistently to protect water resources.

John M. McCollum, director of Public Works said of the results, “This places our water system in the top 5 percent of all water systems in the State of Mississippi. We have been fortunate to receive this recognition for 13 of the past 15 years. The bottom line is we have a system and employees that are second to none.”

Mark McManus, operator of record and superintendent, said, “This rating would not be possible without our hard working distribution crews. They are on call 24 hours a day to ensure safe drinking water. I would also like to recognize water treatment operators Jason Jones, Donald Johnson, and Thomas Bishop for their hard work and dedication.”
