About WMS, Inc.

 

Formed in 2003, Water Management Services, Inc. is available to assist utilities seeking contract services in the areas of administrative, operation, or management services.

WMS was approved by the Alabama Rural Water Association Board of Directors. They realized that in today's world, with so many state and federal regulations governing drinking water and wastewater treatment utilities, many utilities experience difficulty in working to comply with these regulations. WMS aimed to fill that need and now, since 2003, we have successfully assisted many utilities in Alabama.

Not all water and wastewater utilities need outsourced assistance for daily operation and management. However, for some utilities, assistance through a management company is a viable and practical option... an option that may allow the utility to keep its name and autonomy.

Capacity development, a term used in the water industry, refers to a utility's ability to maintain technical, financial, and managerial integrity. These three areas, though very general in nature, must be addressed and met by water utilities providing service to customers. WMS may be an option for consideration by utility officials as they continue to plan for future drinking water and wastwewater treatment demands.

About WMS, Inc.

 

Formed in 2003, Water Management Services, Inc. is available to assist utilities seeking contract services in the areas of administrative, operation, or management services.

WMS was approved by the Alabama Rural Water Association Board of Directors. They realized that in today's world, with so many state and federal regulations governing drinking water and wastewater treatment utilities, many utilities experience difficulty in working to comply with these regulations. WMS aimed to fill that need and now, since 2003, we have successfully assisted many utilities in Alabama.

Not all water and wastewater utilities need outsourced assistance for daily operation and management. However, for some utilities, assistance through a management company is a viable and practical option... an option that may allow the utility to keep its name and autonomy.

Capacity development, a term used in the water industry, refers to a utility's ability to maintain technical, financial, and managerial integrity. These three areas, though very general in nature, must be addressed and met by water utilities providing service to customers. WMS may be an option for consideration by utility officials as they continue to plan for future drinking water and wastwewater treatment demands.
