Bratt-Davisville Water System To Be Acquired By Escambia River Electric
August 29, 2013
Escambia River Electric Cooperative will soon be expanding their water service area in North Escambia, after the membership of the Bratt-Davisville Water System voted to be acquired and operated by EREC.
Under the agreement, EREC will maintain and provide water service to Bratt-Davisville’s 800 customers and expand the water service to the unserved areas of the two communities as is feasible and allowed by franchise agreements.
“EREC will operate the water utility system as a non-profit operation under the same principles as it currently operates its electrical distribution system in order to provide the best possible water service at the least possible cost to the present and future customers of the water distribution system,” said EREC Marketing Director Sabrina Owens.
“As our community’s needs grow and as technology improves, EREC continually strives to expand the services and programs that we offer to our members,” she said.
EREC currently operates the Walnut Hill Water Works, which serves about 700 customers in the Walnut Hill area.
