Since 2015 ESG has partnered with the City in operating and managing Vicksburg’s water treatment system. ESG is honored for the opportunity to expand our partnership with the City and provide these additional services to the citizens of Vicksburg.

Vicksburg is the county seat of Warren County, Mississippi. Located just over 200 miles northwest of New Orleans on the Mississippi River, Vicksburg is a city rich in history and hospitality and often referred to as “The Key to the South.” Over 32,000 citizens live and work in Vicksburg and surrounding communities.

Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. said: “If we are going to meet the growth of this City and meet all the needs of this City, we are going to have to have first-class quality service, and wastewater treatment is essential. ESG has done a good job operating the water treatment plant and has saved the city $165,000 in operating costs.”

ESG, Flaggs said, was selected as the best company based on several criteria—including price, an understanding of the plant’s operation, its maintenance plan, transitional approach, including hiring existing employees, and performance and compliance history.

ESG co-founder and principal J. Clay Sykes said: “ESG is honored to expand our partnership with the City of Vicksburg, and we are excited to add the wastewater treatment plant to the facilities we operate, manage and maintain for Vicksburg.

“We applaud the City’s desire to provide exemplary, state-of-the-art services to the citizens of Vicksburg while also making certain to provide career, growth and training opportunities for employees. ESG looks forward to continuing to be an integral part of the Vicksburg community.”
