On May 7th, 2024, the Osceola Water Works’ team will be handing out more than 1,500 cases of bottled water. This is in response to a generous donation received to help with the ongoing water conservation efforts throughout the community.

More than 1500 cases of bottled water were delivered to the Osceola Water Works offices — a donation from Chem Sult, Inc. and Osceola Hy-Vee.

Chem Sult, Inc., who serves the Osceola Water Works treatment plant with raw water sanitization and clarification chemicals, teamed up with Osceola Hy-Vee to procure a truckload of bottled water to donate to Osceola Water Works customers. On April 12th, 18 pallets of water were delivered to the Osceola Water Works facility.

“We realized the urgency of the water situation in Osceola and wanted to step up to help our partners,” said Travis Webber, Chem-Sult, Inc. representative.

On Tuesday, May 7th, the Osceola Water Board of Trustees and Osceola Water Works staff will be distributing the cases of bottled water to the customers of Osceola. Two sessions are scheduled; the first is from 1:00pm – 3:00pm and the second is from 5:00pm – 7:00pm to help reach as many customers as possible.

“This is a fantastic way to support our community” said Brandon Patterson, Osceola Water Works Superintendent. “Chem-Sult, Inc. and Hy-Vee’s generosity shows that the Osceola Community matters.”
