North Carolina Utilities Department Receives Performance Award
City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department will honored at the annual conference of the AWWA
The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department has received the “Directors Award of Recognition” from the Partnership for Safe Water, a program developed by the American Water Works Assn. (AWWA), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and associated Partner organizations, to guide water suppliers towards improving water quality by optimizing system operations. The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department was presented this award for successfully completing the Self-Assessment and Peer Review phase of the Partnership program—a phase that includes comprehensive evaluation of treatment plant operations and performance, identification of performance limiting factors and the development of action plans to achieve optimization. The plant will be one of a select group of utilities honored by the Partnership at the annual conference of the AWWA, the largest and oldest worldwide organization dedicated to safe water.
“We are honored to receive this award,” said City of Raleigh Public Utilities Director John Carman. “Our utility’s goal is to continually strive to optimize operations and improve the quality of water we deliver to our customers. Achievement of the Directors Award demonstrates our ongoing commitment to protecting public health.”
