MSD is an ever evolving organization. Since 1954, we have focused closely on our responsibility of collecting and treating the wastewater generated within our service area and developing a stormwater management program. MSD has done an exceptional job of maintaining clean waterways and protecting the health and enhancing the quality of life for the people we serve. Because of the dedication of our employees, our commitment to these responsibilities will continue.
In all of our operations at MSD, we are obligated to the maintenance of a healthy environment. As a result, we have become a major contractor of public works projects in the metropolitan area. It is for this reason that we must also be continually aware of our impact on the economic health of the region.
MSD acknowledges the importance of small and diverse businesses as the foundation of a strong community. These businesses include minority and women owned enterprises (MWBE). As we award contracts related to our public works project requirements, we understand that the utilization of these businesses is vital to the continued growth of our community. We know that the strength of our major contractors, consultants and suppliers (which also includes minority and women owned businesses) is dependent upon the viability of their smaller partners. By making genuine efforts to expend our operational dollars with businesses in our customer base, and ensuring the inclusion of minority and women businesses, MSD is demonstrating its commitment to the continued development and growth of historically underutilized businesses.
A successful business requires many components, all of which must come together in a unified manner. Without cooperation and a team spirit the growth of our diverse region will be limited. At MSD we are committed to being a leader in these efforts.
