Tennessee American Water Co. has submitted a proposal to purchase the town of Signal Mountain’s water system.

“Our commitment to the town of Signal Mountain is to provide outstanding customer service, to continue delivering essential and quality water, to invest in the community including as a new taxpayer and to develop a strategic approach to upgrade the water system,” President Val Armstrong said in a prepared statement.

She also said there are significant advantages for the town to approve Tennessee American Water’s proposal.


“With Tennessee American Water as an even more engaged partner, the town will free up funds designated for water infrastructure and reinvest them in other community priorities,” Armstrong said. “The town will also gain a new taxpayer that will provide even more support for community-based initiatives.”

The utility has a 24/7 customer service center available to answer any questions and respond to system problems, according to a news release.

Tennessee American has developed a website for Signal Mountain residents to learn more. Information is also available on Facebook and Twitter pages, @tnamwater, as well as our company website.

A group of citizens is urging the town to sell its water system to Walden’s Ridge Utility District instead of  Tennessee American Water Company.
