The American Water Works Association–Chesapeake Section has named Artesian Lead Water Operator Beth Hamilton as the latest recipient of its Operator of the Year Award, citing Hamilton for her consistent contributions and developments that have improved the quality and supply of water in the Chesapeake Region. Hamilton has more than 26 years of experience as an operator in the water/wastewater field.

Hamilton, the first woman to receive the award, supported the implementation of a new decant system, which drastically reduced the amount of backwash water being sent to waste, thus optimizing water treatment processes and saving sewer fees. She also assisted in the protection of the Artesian Port Deposit water system infrastructure when the town experienced severe flooding last year as a result of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.

“Beth has helped modernize Artesian’s Port Deposit Water Treatment Plant, to cut costs and increase efficiency,” said Manager of Maryland Water Operations Mark Kondelis. “Even when the town was under an evacuation order due to rising flood waters last fall, Beth remained dedicated to ensuring the local water tank was full and the facility was secure.”
