The Clay County Utility Authority “CCUA” team would like to wish all our customers a Happy New Year! Throughout the past year we have worked diligently to create initiatives to help provide the best possible service. I would like to share a quick overview of what we have accomplished and some of our future goals.

As an organization, we were able to keep both you and our employees’ best interest in mind navigating the everchanging landscape of COVID-19 by implementing policies that allowed for a safe work environment. With the continued growth in our county, the need to adapt to the changes to mitigate impacts from COVID-19 allowed for us to look at how CCUA has previously done things in the past and ask ourselves how we could possibly improve.

We are now more than 18 months into a significant transition to better serve you, our customer, as well as all the new customers moving into Clay County. We created several new departments to improve staff efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency. The new departments align with our mission statement. We promoted several qualified internal candidates with significant professional and institutional knowledge. We also hired external professional candidates with diverse backgrounds and extensive professional experience. All while keeping you, our customer, front and center in our minds.

We remain committed to providing clean, safe, and reliable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water services while protecting our precious natural water resources in Clay County. Our team continues development of their strategic planning efforts to make sure these expectations are met. Our planning efforts in the Strategic Plan, Integrated Water Resources Plan, and Rate Study focus on our ability to sustain our services economically and environmentally to our customers now and into the foreseeable future.

You will begin to see construction happening at several key projects this year. At our Saratoga Springs property, a new Water Treatment Plant, Reclaimed Storage, and Pumping Facility will start to take shape. We will begin upgrading both the Ridgecrest and Meadow Lake Water Treatment Plants to modernize and meet the needs of our growing population. We will also break ground on a new storage and maintenance facility at our main administrative complex on Old Jennings Road.

Finally, we want to ensure that our employees are at the forefront of everything we do. For this to happen, we are developing new CCUA staff training, development, and incentive programs. Our goal to promote a forward-thinking and positive work environment, eventually results in a better service for you, our customer.

While 2021 was a challenging year, we think 2022 started with a great deal of enthusiasm and opportunity. We consider this an exciting time for CCUA and the Clay County community as we transition and grow. We look forward to growing and continuing to serve with you.

Respectfully,

Jeremy D. Johnston, PE, MBA
Executive Director
