We care deeply about our community because we live, work and play here too. We are committed to making a positive difference in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties and consider it a privilege to give back in every way we can as a company and as individual employees. Each year, ECUA employees selflessly give their time, resources and talents to several local and national charitable causes to help improve the quality of life for those living in the communities we proudly serve.
For the 6th consecutive year, ECUA's Quench Buggy and public information staff distributed award-winning, freshly chilled water and information on recycling, FOG, flushable wipes, composting and the elimination of sanitary sewer overflows.
ECUA employees love to visit schools in our community to talk trash! Our Quench Buggy is always on hand to satisfy everyone's thirst for knowledge as they enjoy a cold drink of ECUA water and learn about recycling, the Water Cycle and conservation and wastewater treatment/reclamation.
Since 1999, the ECUA Employees' Golf Tournament has raised over $185,000 for the Sacred Heart Children's Foundation.
Even our furry friends enjoy a refreshing sip of award-winning ECUA water – especially in July!
In 2017 the Information Technology Department received recognition for its accomplishments and was honored with two awards.
