A local public service district was showing off some new equipment to the public on Thursday that'll help it's customers get better service all year long.
The Central Barbour PSD recently put some new technology into their pump stations to make sure the water services never fail for it's customers.
The new system will allow the pumps to be turned on automatically, and will alert workers if there's any possible failures to the pumps.
That means customers won't see any service interruptions because of this new technology.
"It ensures that when you turn a pump on, that pump comes on. Not only for keeping people with water, but also for fire protection. Fire engines pull up and start draining the tanks, the system automatically kicks on, and makes sure that tank stays with water," said Mike Masterman, owner of Extreme Endeavors.
The system has been in place for about a month, and officials tell us it's been working great ever since.
