Curtis Posey, Utility System Worker

It is with profound sadness that we mourn the passing of Curtis Posey, Utility System Worker at Henderson Water Utility.

Curtis was involved in an automobile accident on his way home from work Wednesday evening (06-08-2016).

Curtis has worked at HWU for 15-1/2 years.  He held a Class I Distribution License, and worked on the camera van that is used to perform video inspections of the distribution and collection system.

Curtis’ friends and co-workers heard Curtis speak often and lovingly about his wife Peggy, his daughter Christy, other family members, and his Chihuahua dogs Scooter and Little Man.

Many who worked closely with Curtis remember him as being very neat, organized and never late to work!  Curtis was a very kind, friendly man and a joy to work with.  He also loved Snickers bars, so his friends and co-workers will probably gather together and have a Snickers bar in loving memory of their good friend Curtis Posey!  Curtis will be missed by us all at Henderson Water Utility.

 Lead and Copper In Your Drinking Water

Henderson Water Utility (HWU) takes its role in safeguarding the public health very seriously.  We also take a lot of pride in producing and delivering to you high quality water that you can be confident in.  HWU is paying close attention to the developing water quality problem in Flint, Michigan.  Our thoughts are with all those who are struggling without access to safe and reliable water in their homes.  No one should have to question the safety of water at the tap.

Lead_And_Copper_01

As your water provider, we would like to take this opportunity to answer a few of the main questions and concerns that you might have about lead and copper in your drinking water.

Is My Water Safe?

The drinking water that HWU produces and sends throughout its network of water mains is safe, with levels of lead and copper that are extremely low.  However, if a water customer has old lead service lines running between the water main in the street and the home, or has old lead plumbing inside the home, then it is possible that unsafe levels of lead might be present in the water supply.

Both the Riverwalk and Water Street / Merritt Drive between Fifth and Sixth streets had been closed to traffic for the installation of a 30” raw water line across the street, and for work on the retaining wall next to the North Water Treatment Plant. All of that work has now been completed.
