Active Directory Groups question

I have a few groups that I would like to clean up, but I want to make sure
that my understanding is correct.

I have a couple Global Security Groups called Elec Admin and Electric Admin.
I also have a Universal Security Group called Public Utilities.  All the
same people are in all three groups.  I also have a Universal Distribution
group called Electric Administration Department - same people.

Please correct me if my understanding is incorrect.  If I create a Universal
Security Group and give it an e-mail address, I should be able to eliminate
the global security groups and the distribution group, correct?  I would
prefer to have one group per department that can serve as a security group
and a distripution group for exchange.  I'd like to clean up AD and this will
be a big step.

Thank you.
