Demonstrating once again that they are truly “Connected to the Community,” the Port St. Lucie Utility Systems Department adopted nearly two miles of roadway through the Keep Port St. Lucie Beautiful Adopt-a-Street program. Their adopted neighborhood streets surround the Prineville Water Treatment Plant compound.
Nine employees volunteered their time to participate in the group’s first cleanup on Nov. 17. The volunteers collected 12 bags of trash in just one hour, picking up everything from cigarette butts to stemware. Employees have committed to one cleanup a month.
“I’m so proud to call these folks coworkers,” said Jenny Tomes, Project Coordinator-Utility Outreach. “They are extremely dedicated to this community.”
Port St. Lucie’s Utility is a state-of-the-art water, wastewater, and reclaimed water utility with 249 employees dedicated to protecting the local environment and to providing safe and reliable drinking water and wastewater services to 70,000 customers.
Their service area, covering the entire City of Port St. Lucie and portions of unincorporated St. Lucie County, encompasses more than 130 square miles, making them the largest multi-service utility on the Treasure Coast of Florida.
