New Management

Due to increased regulations and limited manpower to accomplish needed tasks and be in compliance, the POWA board of directors agreed to let Central Arkansas Water (CAW) do a feasibility study on a possible merger.  Because of the high quality standards they operate within, CAW scurutinized all aspects of the Paron-Owensville system.  They noted items of compliance maintenance that were due and changes needed to integrate monitoring capabilities into their existing system.  They reviewed the loans owed for construction of the system.

The result was an offer to consolidate and take over management of the Paron-Owensville system.  The POWA board announced a public meeting in January 2020 to review the offer with customers.  Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the consolidation did not become final until June 1, 2020.

CAW is out in the area, getting familiar with the system layout and GPSing meters, valves and hydrants to make them easier to locate in our rural area.  

Management by Central Arkansas Water will assure the Paron-Owensville residents of receiving high quailty water and exceptional service far into the future.  We thank them for their commitment to our customers.

Be prepared.

Be prepared.

September 01, 2020

September has arrived, and autumn is well on its way.

As the summer heat begins to fade, and the first hints of red and gold begin to appear, it’s a great time to relax and enjoy the mild weather. Next Monday, September 7, is Labor Day/ Labour Day, a day which honors the achievements of our workforce —a "yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our countr[ies].” Department of Labor.  
So, take a break, rest from your labor, and enjoy the respite. 

Then, after your rest, take advantage of this time to plan ahead. September is considered “National Preparedness Month” in the US: a month to get ready, to get prepared for harsher weather and conditions that will be coming, and a time to prepare for any emergencies that might arise.
So, use this September to make sure that you —and your home— are ready.
