  • Get in on the action! MAWSA is looking to hire a water/wastewater laborer. Learn more here.
  • SPRING IS ALMOST HERE: During thaws we typically see a rise in water main breaks. If you see standing water where the road should be dry, or water running down the road, call us so that we can check on it.
