WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
“I just wanted to take a moment to inform you of recent events near my property at Tamalpais Court. Yesterday the main water line for our Court burst and was gushing pretty good. I notified TUD immediately by calling the local Sonora office. Your phone system was very easy to navigate and took me straight to a representative. I was very politely greeted and I told the customer service representative what was going on. She was very polite and told me she would notify a team right away.
A very nice young man arrived within 15 minutes or so. He asked me a couple of questions and told me he was notifying the supervisor of what he found. He told me what I could expect to happen in the next couple of hours, and he stayed onsite until others arrived and the work order was set in motion. The entire crew that was sent out here were all very polite and courteous. They kept me informed of what was going on throughout the whole process. This entire crew worked hard all day. I didn’t see one slacker in the bunch. They had a very long day here yesterday, and they arrived early this morning to finish doing exactly what they told me they would.
I want to thank them all for their very quick response to this problem., and for working so hard and so long to restore our water. I wish I knew all of their names so that I could thank them individually. Please do that for me. Your website indicates TUD strives for great customer service. The employees that were involved in this process yesterday, from the first phone call on, exemplify GREAT customer service and should be rewarded for their outstanding service to your customers.”
“We have a house located on Willow Springs Drive in Soulsbyville. Recently, we received a tag from a meter reader which advised us that we may have a leak. While we have no evidence of that, we are investigating.
Part of our effort to investigate has involved calling your office multiple times to discuss potential causes and receive some direction. We have been in direct contact by phone and/or email with Calisha in your Customer Service department, and at every juncture, she has been incredible, friendly and enthusiastic. Furthermore, Calisha is knowledgeable, compassionate, thorough, and all about customer service. I spent 32 years in the fire service, so I am very well-versed in what great service is, and these days, great customer service is a lost art.
It is very easy and convenient for customers to complain about things, some warranted and some not, however, compliments are few and far between. I imagine you already know how fortunate you are to have Calisha representing TUD, however, now you know we feel the same way.
Way to go Calisha and thank you!!!”
Paul Schuller, Soulsbyville

DON'T PUT WIPES IN THE PIPES
Although a package may be marked as “flushable”, that is not the case in most instances when it comes to traveling through a sewer system. The highly marketable premoistened personal wipes are causing problems for wastewater plant managers throughout the United States, including TUD’s Regional Wastewater Treatment facility in Sonora. Unlike toilet paper, which is usually made from natural or recycled cellulose fibers, a wet wipe may be made from cellulosic or synthetic fibers, depending on its intended use. Many studies have concluded that after 24 hours, most “flushable” wipes do not dissolve and remain in the sewer system. TUD would like to ask all of our sewer customers to avoid flushing any type of wipe, “flushable” or otherwise, down the toilet. This will prevent costly clogs and environmentally damaging overflows. Watch the informational video to the right for more information about this issue.
