Bear Creek Water Association has again earned the maximum score of 5.0 / 5.0 from the Mississippi State Department of Health for the drinking water supply.  This is according to the MSDH inspection report dated May 24, 2017.

Bear Creek Water Association General Manager Nolan Williamson says, “The Mississippi State Department of Health conducts a yearly inspection, and gives a score based on several criteria.  The three categories are technical, managerial, and financial.  We are pleased that we have received the maximum score of 5.0 in all three categories.  Our board of directors has worked very hard to make sure we stay financially sound, and our staff of licensed water operators makes sure all of our sampling, testing, and compliance is monitored per the regulatory requirements.  And the State Department of Health staff is great for providing any necessary guidance.  Our goal is to provide the safest drinking water that we possibly can to our customers.”
