Keeping It Clean.
Wastewater treatment is the process of cleaning used water and sewage so it can be returned to the environment. The goal is to protect water supplies like oceans, lakes, streams and rivers.
Earth's Essential Element.
We work hard to protect your water supply by maintaining existing water systems, treating used water, drilling new wells, improving technology, and testing water for purity and quality
Clean. Plentiful. Efficient.
Clean, plentiful, efficient and safe, Natural Gas is a reliable and efficient energy source. Even during inclement weather and power outages, natural gas service through NBU continues.
NBU is governed by a five-member board appointed by the mayor and city council. To better represent the service area, director positions are held by customers who reside in Bay Minette, Stockton and Stapleton. Please visit our Board page for term lengths, a board application, a board schedule and meeting times, and updates regarding rescheduling when necessary.
