Steve Spratt


System Manager
Steve Spratt is the System Manager for the FGUA. Since joining the FGUA team in 2007, he has successfully overseen the acquisition and transition of nine private investor-owned utilities to public ownership ensuring improved customer service and water quality to 120,000 customers in 14 Florida counties. Prior to serving the FGUA, Steve spent over 30 years providing management expertise at all levels of county government, including Assistant County Manager in Miami-Dade County and County Administrator in Pinellas County. When not expertly guiding FGUA’s staff, Steve enjoys water sports, spending time with his seven dogs, cycling the Pinellas Trail on weekends, and recently welcomed the arrival of his first grandchild.


Matt Rihs

Matt is the customer ombudsman, neighborhood liaison, and public relations contact for the FGUA in Pasco and Polk Counties. Throughout his career, Matt has been a dedicated public servant, and for the last seven years, has provided the highest standard of seamless customer service for elevated customer and community inquiries. Matt has effectively moderated and worked with the Pasco Customer Committee, a voluntary committee of FGUA customers providing feedback on capital improvements, utility finances, system operations, and policies and procedures. He has also successfully executed public information campaigns, including advising the Tampa Bay area media of the $10.5 million Seven Springs System Capital Improvement Program, which addressed longstanding water quality concerns in the Trinity and New Port Richey communities in Pasco County.
