What We're Thankful For

It's that time of year again! 
 
As we all sit around the dinner table for Thanksgiving with family and friends to recognize what we are most thankful for, the Aqua team would like to thank the people who make clean and accessible water a possibility: our employees. Their dedication to their trade helps build a stronger and more reliable water infrastructure and a closer bond with the customers we serve.
 
 
With winter weather approaching, our crews will work tirelessly to respond to emergencies and ensure water service through even the harshest of polar vortexes. We are thankful for our employees' hard-work and daily commitment to excellent service in some times unpredictable conditions, long hours and plenty of service requests.
 
Whether you work in the lab, at a call center, or out in the field, we can not thank you enough for your work. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank You Laborers!

The first Monday of each September is bittersweet.

On one hand, we have our Labor Day barbeques where we pass the time with some of our friends and family and try not to get ourselves into trouble with fireworks.  We enjoy one last weekend at the beach before sending our kids back to school (finally). Perhaps most importantly, football season begins.

On the other hand, summer is coming to an end. The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder.  But before we start thinking about frozen pipes- yikes - let’s take some time to thank the laborers.

Today we recognize our countless employees — as well as those in other fields — and thank them for their efforts.

Thank you to our crews who work tirelessly, responding to emergencies and ensuring water service through even the harshest of conditions. Thank you for your hard work and commitment to outstanding service through long hours and unpredictable circumstances while out in the field.

 

Today we owe them our thanks

 

The carpenters who build our homes…

The electricians who climb our power lines during thunderstorms to keep our lights on…

And (our personal favorites) the utility workers who keep clean, usable water flowing through our bathrooms and kitchens.

These men and women have time and time again demonstrated a true dedication to their work and have provided a strong and reliable infrastructure that we benefit from everyday.

So this weekend as we enjoy ourselves— let’s also show appreciation to those who make our lives easier.

 

Thank you from Aqua America!
