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.
