Today’s CEO class met with Casey Johnson, Superintendent of the
Anna-Jonesboro Water Commission, who acts under the direction of board members from the city councils of Anna and Jonesboro as well as commissioners from Union County. Casey has had to achieve several certifications to have this position. Some of the major talking points:
· Budget- AJWC is service oriented rather than for profit. Any profits made, which are minimal, are used to go back into the. budget for large projects to maintain the facility.
· Improvements- The facility has seen major physical upgrades in the last two years during Casey’s tenure.
· Well water -Water comes from wells that are located in Jonesboro in high elevation areas with water flowing to the low level area of the treatment plant off Berryville road. Other option for water use is surface water (such as Rend Lake) that is much more labor intensive to treat and is usually not as good tasting.
· Water cleaning process—chemicals used to maintain safe, clean water to the community. The commission is proud that
their facility is one of the few that operates very efficiently and in the black and has had no major issues with water safety.
