The Greeley Water & Sewer Department is an essential service provider of high-quality water at affordable prices, regardless of droughts, fires, floods, blizzards, or pandemics.
Greeley water crews are dedicated and certified professionals.
One of our water plant operators, Cayetano Perez, shared the following poem his wife, Gina, wrote that celebrates the hard work of Greeley’s water & sewer employees and all water professionals.
THIRST FOR APPRECIATION
The sparkling liquid that flows through the world’s veins
Fills its lakes and its seas
From the heavens it rains
Sustaining all the earth’s life, quenching thirst beyond measure
Our water, a gift
An eternal treasure
Yet each day passes with little consideration
For the unlikely Hero
Who’s life’s work, water filtration
For upon these wise shoulders rests our well-being and hearts-ease
They take this in stride, displaying poise and expertise
Very few understand the responsibility or stress
Of the Water Treatment Operator
Constantly giving their best
For your hard work and care, appreciation is garnered
A salute from the heart…
A poem in your honor
