“Water is one of the most valuable resources in the world. It’s something that we take for granted until the taps stop flowing. During plant tours, we give customers an opportunity to see behind the tap and learn what goes into this process of bringing that final product to their homes.” – H. Bernard Franks, CCWA General Manager.
