Our community involvement goes beyond providing utility services


Serving customers with reliable, affordable utility services is more than a mission for Clarksdale Public Utilities — it is a point of community pride. And we believe that giving back to the community is an important part of our commitment to customers and to Clarksdale.


CPU’s investment in the community goes much deeper than delivering essential utility services. We also provide complimentary services that customers may not be aware of, such as utilities for local government offices. CPU employees also maintain streetlights and install and repair fire hydrants throughout the city. In fact, CPU provides more than $700,000 annually in services that enhance Clarksdale’s safety and quality of life.
