Municipal Light, Water & Sewer

The City of Piggott is proud to control its own electrical system which was been in operation since 1922.  It consists of 30 miles of overhead line and 6.25 miles of underground line.  We serve 2,213 meters and one sub-station.  Our power resources includes 5 MW of hydropower from the Southwestern Power Administration, 6 MW from Plum Point Energy Station (a 667 MW coal fired generation power plant located in Osceola, Arkansas) and 7 MW of local emergency generation capacity from five Fairbanks-Morse generators.

We receive our energy across the Southwestern Power Administration's transmission system at 69 KVA. We are market participants in the Southwest Power Pool, Regional Transmission Organization and also, the Midcontinent System Operator, Regional Transmission Organization.

MLWS Electric Department is currently in the process of converting all electric meters over to radio read meters, which should be completed in 2019. Additionally, we are in the process of replacing our street lights with energy efficient LED lighting.

Our goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water, as a city, we want the consumer to understand, and be involved in the
efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.  Our local sources of drinking water come from up to six different wells pumping from the Nacatoch Sand Aquifer, the Wilcox Group Aquifer, or the Quarternary System Aquifer. These wells have been tested and shown to be clean and safe sources of water for Piggott and Clay County.

If you have any concerns about your water quality, please review our 2016 Drinking Water Quality Report or contact Bradley Scheffler, Water & Sewer Supervisor, at 870-598-2946.
