The goal of the Inspection Department of the Consolidated Utility District of Rutherford County is to provide protection for the health, safety and welfare of the general public in relation to the public water system and guarantee that all improvements are constructed in conformance with CUD standards and applicable law. An old adage within the department is, “You don’t get what you expect. You get what you inspect.” CUD personnel strive to ensure that their ratepayers receive the quality installations that guarantee quality service for the 21st Century.
