During a recent visit by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s (TDEC) Division of Water Resources (DWR) a Sanitary Survey was conducted. The survey consisted of a records review to document the operational performance of the system and an on-site inspection of the water treatment and distribution system. The survey covered the time period from February 2014 through January 2016.
The City of Bristol earned 594 points out of a possible 599 points for a numerical score of ninety-nine percent (99%). This rating retains the city’s Department of Utilities in the “Approved” status by the TDEC. “Tim Beavers, Director of Public Works, David St. John, Utility Services Manager, Frank Neal, Utilities Superintendent, and all the employees of the Utility Service division are commended for their dedication and excellent work in providing the community with safe, high-quality water service,” said City Manager Bill Sorah. “Bristol has long been recognized as having one of the best water systems in the state, which ratings like this confirm,” he added.
