MWA Awarded Top Industry Honors

December 26, 2017 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.

As 2017 comes to a close, the Macon Water Authority (MWA) will celebrate the New Year with the distinction of having one of the highest rated water and sewer systems in the state.

During the recent Fall Conference of the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP), the MWA received the Collection System Platinum Award, for achieving a grade of 95 or higher for at least five consecutive years on its annual review of operations by industry judges. The Authority was one of only nine sewer utilities in the state to receive the highest system rating possible.

In addition, the MWA received the 2017 GAWP Water Distribution System Gold Award for achieving a quantitative score of 95 or higher this past year on the annual review of its water utility operations by industry judges. The MWA was one of only eight water utilities in Georgia to receive this Gold Award distinction.

Finally, the MWA Frank C. Amerson, Jr. Water Treatment Plant received the annual Safety Award from the Georgia Section of the American Water Works Association (GAWWA), following an annual inspection of the facility for preparations and protocol to assure the safety of employees and customers of the Amerson Plant.

“These awards reflect a level of excellence that is very difficult to attain for a water and sewer utility,” says Tony Rojas, MWA President and Executive Director. “To be recognized for having the highest rated distribution and collection system is a testament to the dedication and skills of our employees throughout the entire Authority. It requires a complete team effort to achieve an honor of this magnitude.”
