Earlier this year, the Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board elected to shift the SAWS administrative duties over to the County Public Works Department. That transition has included the addition of a position that will oversee day-to-day administrative duties of the SAWS system. SAWS Project Manager Dan Coughlin says he's been busy over the last month getting acclimated to how the system operates.
While Coughlin will handle the daily duties of SAWS, County Public Works Director Rod Liesinger has assumed the role of Administrator. The City of Sheridan will continue to operate and maintain the system, bill the water users, and also continue to provide engineering and technical support as they have in the past.
