We realize that to successfully fulfill our mission of providing safe and reliable water services to our customers and communities, the relationships we forge with our suppliers are key.

We partner with suppliers with specific goals in mind that help us to accomplish extraordinary things, such as:

  • Enabling Innovation
  • Reducing Costs
  • Promoting Sustainability
  • Supporting Diversity

We welcome a variety of suppliers and strive to maintain a diverse list of companies who work with us. To do this, we’ve implemented a Supplier Diversity Program to better offer smaller organizations and those run by women and minorities, the opportunity to supply us with essential products and services.

If you’d like to explore opportunities for providing products or services, please read the information in the Becoming a Supplier section below. You’ll also find the information needed to register with us. Once registered, your information will be forwarded to the appropriate Supply Chain strategic buyer. If we are able to use the products or services you provide, a buyer will contact you to discuss the possibility of our companies working together.
