As Etowah has grown from railroad town Etowah Utilities has been there every step of the way. Etowah has never had to restrict development and progress for its citizens or its industry due to a lack of adequate utility services. Operating with efficient, cost effective, business-like operations, free from profit motive influences, has resulted in rates that are comparable throughout the surrounding area. This encourages growth and leaves more discretionary spending dollars in the local economy.
We provide electricity that is purchased from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and distribute it throughout McMinn, Monroe and Polk Counties.
Natural Gas is purchased in the Gulf of Mexico and is transported by pipeline for distribution by Etowah Utilities. We distribute natural gas to McMinn and Polk Counties and to other Distributors.
The Water comes from the Hiwassee River . This water is purified in accordance with rules and regulations of the Tennessee Department of Conservation (TDEC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The water quality is closely monitored by our on-site operators.
