Fayetteville Public Works Commission is continuing a winning streak that now spans across two decades.

The PWC Board was presented with the 20-Year Director's Award from the Partnership for Safe Water in mid January. According to the company's LinkedIn post celebrating the award, PWC was the first utility company in the state to receive the Directors Award, beginning in 2000, and is now the first to have earned it for more than 20 consecutive years, an honor achieved by less than 200 water utilities across the country.

The award recognizes PWC’s efforts and proven ability to treat water in a manner which meets or exceeds current regulatory practices.

The Director’s Award is presented to water systems who have completed a successful review in the Partnership’s Self-Assessment and Peer Review phase, a phase in which utilities examine the capabilities of their treatment plant operation and administration and then create a plan for implementing improvements.

The award is presented annually by the Partnership for Safe Water, voluntary initiative for enhancing water treatment to provide higher quality drinking water, which was developed jointly by the Environmental Protection Agency, American Water Works Association, utilities, and other water organizations.
