Chris Lively and Steven Rigsby incorporated Water Works Irrigation in November 2001, after Steven's service in the United States Marine Corps. Within the ten years we were blessed with Chris, he helped build our small company to the capability of handling complete subdivisions, commercial maintenance sites, and large construction projects, while always maintaining the friendly attitude required to be personal with all of our loyal homeowners.
We lost Chris in October 2010 to cancer. It was the driest year in Louisiana in our lifetime, and Chris worked daylight to dark through August of that year before finding out there was anything wrong. He was the hardest-working, friendliest man we have ever known. We will always miss him, and we make every attempt to honor his memory by continuing this company with the passion that he showed us every day.
We have installed the irrigation for the St. Jude Dream Home every year since we opened our doors. (You might have seen Steven on KSLA talking about the home!) We give frequently to local organizations and schools, the American Cancer Society, AMVETS, and the El Karuba Shriners. We recognize every day what a blessing it is to be alive and want to share all that we can with those who are in need.
As a company, and a family, we have overcome many obstacles, and though we may struggle in the future, we know that with the support of our loyal customers and friends, we will always overcome. We hope that those individuals, groups, and companies all realize that we appreciate them every day.
We certainly hope to add you to our list of satisfied patrons and loyal friends. Take pride in knowing you support a veteran owned and woman run business!
