What Previous Torch Award Winners Have Said

“When you try hard every day to do the right thing for your customers, it is nice to get an award that celebrates those ethics and high standards. That positive reinforcement helps energize us to raise that level as high as we can everyday.”

Peter J. Fitzpatrick, PJ Fitzpatrick


“We believe that Tidewater Utilities, Inc. is one of the Better Business Bureau’s true success stories. Several years ago, Tidewater was a small water company with an average history of customer service, little emphasis on community involvement, and a small, undervalued staff. It was not even eligible to become a member to the BBB at the time. Tidewater’s employee Team provided the leadership to invest the time, money, and a new management philosophy and worked very hard to improve the outlook of our company. Receiving the BBB’s Torch Award for Market Place Ethics was the culmination of all our employees’ hard work. Tidewater feels that being an award winning member of the Better Business Bureau speaks volumes to our existing and potential customers on how we have matured as a company, as well as, how we interact with and participate as valued members of the communities in which we serve.”

Carol Murphy, Tidewater Utilities
