As one of the most important substances on earth, water offers many key components that produce the abundances of life around us every day. Keeping that importance in mind, Jackson Energy Authority’s water division works not only to provide safe, clean water to this community but also to care for, protect and preserve it.
Jackson Energy Authority is fortunate to have access to the highest-quality groundwater via deep wells located throughout the city.
Groundwater is, and will continue to be, the source water for our community. As water is one of our most essential natural resources, it’s important for us all to help protect it.
Before it arrives at your tap, Jackson Energy Authority water goes through a multi-step treatment process to remove sediment and impurities.
