Manager's Message

The City of Florence Natural Gas Department began operations in May of 1950. At this time, all of the natural gas was transported across O'Neal Bridge from a tap in Sheffield to serve the 2,400 customers.  In 1983 the Gas Department acquired its first tap off of a major pipeline in Lauderdale County and built a pipeline from Oakland into Florence. By 1998 we had our 5th tap and gate station providing our system with one of the best integrated gas supplies in the United States.  Today, with its high-pressure distribution system, the City of Florence Natural Gas Department also resells natural gas to 15,375 customers.

The City of Florence Water/Wastewater Department serves approximately 24,000 drinking residential and commercial water customers in Florence and portions of Lauderdale County.  In addition, the department supplies water to four purchase water systems that serve the remaining majority of Lauderdale County.

Wastewater (sewer) service is also available to approximately 15,000 residential and commercial customers in the majority of Florence and some adjoining areas outside of the city's corporate limits.
