Water Plant receives award for outstanding performance
The Byrdstown Water Treatment Plant operations staff recently received recognition from the Kentucky / Tennessee Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) for outstanding plant operation at its annual Water Professionals Conference in Covington, Ky.
The Byrdstown water plant was the only plant in Tennessee to receive this award in the 0-5 million gallon per day category. The Outstanding Plant Operation Award is given each year to five water treatment plant operation staffs across the Sectionâ€™s territory, broken into three different plant size categories. Receiving this award is quite an honor considering there are approximately 690 public water systems in Tennessee.
Nominees are further graded through a written process and a site visit. The selection committee for KY/TN AWWA endeavors to recognize those plant operation staffs that have demonstrated exceptional performance in exceeding all Federal Drinking Water Standards and initiative to excel at the business of producing safe water for its customers.
