The Pine Bluff Water Authority (PBWA) was created in 1969 under the servitude of Mr. Clements Massey, Mr. Earnest Harmon, Mr. Aaron Nix, Mr. George Headley, Mr. Joe Massey, Ms. Ann Massey and Ms. Rossye Massey. At the time of its creation, the PBWA was the 100th water system in the State of Alabama. Over the years, many people have dedicated their time, leadership, and service toward the growth and the betterment of the PBWA. In 2009, 40 years after its creation, the Pine Bluff Water Authority embarked on building a new office to better service the people of the PBWA. In 2010, the building was officially dedicated to the Pine Bluff water customers: past, present and future.
