American Water Receives Safety Award From Missouri Water Environment Association

American Water (NYSE: AWK), the nation’s largest publicly traded water utility, today announced that its Contract Services Group received the 2012 Safety Award from the Missouri Water Environment Association (MWEA). The award, which recognized American Water for the highest level of safety compliance in its operation of the City of St. Charles wastewater treatment facility, is being presented today at the MWEA annual meeting.

"Safety is paramount to our company and we are honored to receive this award," said David Choate, president of American Water's Contract Services Group. "Our St. Charles operations team continues to demonstrate its commitment to achieving a 100 percent safe workplace and providing operational excellence to the City of St. Charles. This award is a great example of our commitment to ensuring we have a safe workplace and an excellent safety program."

The Safety Award is given annually by the MWEA to facilities within the State of Missouri that have the highest level of safety compliance. This is the second year American Water has won this award for its operation of the St. Charles facility, which includes the Mississippi River and Missouri River wastewater treatment plants. The two treatment facilities consistently operated better than limits set forth in the city’s operating permit, as specified by the State of Missouri Department of Natural Resources National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.

American Water’s Contract Services Group has operated and maintained the City of St. Charles wastewater treatment facilities since 1984. The facilities treated an average of 8.236 million gallons of wastewater per day in 2012.

American Water’s Contract Services Group provides water and wastewater operations and management solutions to municipalities and industrial clients in the U.S. and Canada. The Contract Services Group is part of American Water Enterprises, Inc., the wholly owned market-based subsidiary of American Water.

Founded in 1886, American Water is the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company. With headquarters in Voorhees, N.J., the company employs approximately 6,700 dedicated professionals who provide drinking water, wastewater and other related services to an estimated 14 million people in more than 30 states and parts of Canada.
