American Water Heater Co. recently shipped tractor truckloads of gas water heaters to aid in the Katrina rebuilding effort for relief along the Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama Gulf Coasts. A total of 907 units were donated. The water heaters will be directly used to replace those water heaters in existing homes that sustained heavy flooding damage.

Mobile Gas, located in Mobile, AL, a distributor of American Water Heater products, coordinated the relief effort through local utilities for on-site deliveries.
