At the heart of IES is water and wastewater contract operations. That's where the company began, and over 15 years later, IES remains strong in contract operations, evolving into a complete turnkey operation provider. We are the only company in the Northern Shenandoah Valley providing a full range of environmental management services.
You'll commonly find that you're spending the same or even less on your utilities maintenance when you contract IES. One of the reasons for this is efficiency. The employees of IES work extra hard, because when you look good, we look good. When IES works for your utility, we're not just doing a job, we're building a reputation. Plus, because of the volume of work IES does in this specific area, we are usually able to do your job at a lower cost than you could on your own, then pass the savings on to you.
Saving a little money is always good, but is that the only advantage? Not by a long shot! When IES takes over your utilities management, you'll be amazed at all the things you don't have to think about anymore. IES deals with the regulatory agencies, inspections, lab work, testing, and all applications. Plus, the employees working on your job are IES employees. That means that all of their benefits, pay, training, and insurance are handled by IES. In many cases, IES has even been able to take on existing, standout employees as their own, making the decision to privatize utilities even easier. They also have their own equipment, freeing you from the worry of equipment costs and maintenance. We have operators to take care of your everyday needs and preventative maintenance, and when it comes time for repair or replacement, there's a maintenance team ready to handle whatever needs to be done. Though many municipalities choose to handle utility billing themselves, IES is willing and able to assume the responsibility of meter reading and billing. When you're not bogged down with the responsibilities of your utilities, your resources are freed up to be used elsewhere.
When we say you won't have to worry when you contract IES, we mean it. All of our operators are properly licensed, insured, and extensively trained. All of your testing will be done at our in-house laboratory, which is fully certified.
When the unexpected arises, there is someone on-call 24 hours a day. IES is proud of our emergency response time. Plus, with our breadth of resources, there is always back-up support available when the situation calls for it.
