Centerville, Tennessee Water System Crisis

CWS has been providing emergency assistance to the Town of Centerville, TN to help resolve its water system issues.  After torrential rains and flooding caused nearby Swan Creek to overflow its riverbanks last week, runoff with unusually high amounts of sediment inundated the Town’s water treatment plant and the raw water changed characteristics rapidly.  The Centerville Water System customers were notified that the water leaving the plant was suspected to be contaminated and a “Boil Water Notice” was issued to all customers.  The CWS operations team, led by Chris Lee, has been on-site assisting with plant optimization and treatment techniques to get their potable water back within standard regulatory compliance limits.  Engineers from Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood, our parent company, were there as well providing engineering support.  According to Mayor Gary Jacobs’ Facebook post on Monday, “the plant was producing and pumping water that meets all required standards for quality and purity.”  

Although the Town of Centerville is not a CWS client, we were honored to have been asked to help them through this emergency situation.  Our experienced team was able to step in at a moment’s notice to provide the treatment and optimization expertise that were critical in getting the water service restored.

With your oversight, the City’s water and sewer operations have greatly improved. CWS clearly understands the needs of the City, its operations, and our desire to provide a first-class interaction with the citizens of Fayetteville. Your organized approach and effective communication allow for key decision-making in providing cost-effective solutions required on all water and sewer-related projects. I greatly appreciate your team’s attention to detail and quality and look forward to our continued partnership.

The knowledge, dedication and professionalism of the Clearwater Solutions personnel has turned our plant operations around completely since they were hired by the City. They have taken our wastewater treatment plant from chronic monthly violations to violation free for the past several months! It truly feels like a partnership instead of just another contracted service.


CWS, Mark Pressgrove, and his team of professionals always go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the needs of the Town of Walls’ sewer system and our residents. CWS is always quick in response to our sewer issues and determining the problem in a swift manner saving the Town time and money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.


ClearWater Solutions, LLC has gone above and beyond in operating and maintenance of the Hall County sewer system of 0.75 MGD plant, 19 pump stations and over 350,000 LF of mains. They have provided a high quality of customer service to both Hall County staff and its citizens. I strongly recommend them for anyone who’s looking to hire an outstanding O&M company.
