Kentucky American Water Receives National Awards For Excellence In Water Quality

Stocks in this article: AWK

Kentucky American Water is proud to announce the achievement of two Phase III Directors Awards from the Partnership for Safe Water for its Kentucky River Station I and Richmond Road Station water treatment plants in Fayette County. The awards were presented to company representatives, Dorothy Johnson of the water quality team and Mitzi Combs, supervisor of the Kentucky River Station I treatment plant, during the 2013 American Water Works Association Annual Conference in Denver, Co., this week.

The Partnership for Safe Water Program is a voluntary initiative developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other water organizations designed to increase protection of the public by encouraging partner utilities to meet requirements that are more stringent than what is required by law through total plant optimization. Only about three percent of all public surface water plants are part of the program, and with a total of 80 plants in the partnership, American Water subsidiaries account for 20 percent of the participating plants nationwide. American Water is the parent company of Kentucky American Water.

As a member of the Partnership for Safe Water, Kentucky American Water demonstrates its commitment to improving the quality of drinking water delivered to customers by optimizing system operations. Its Kentucky River Station I and Richmond Road Station water treatment plants were recognized for maintaining the Phase III Directors Award status for 15 years.

“We continuously strive to optimize operations and improve the quality of water we deliver to our customers,” said Cheryl Norton, president of Kentucky American Water. “Our employees are dedicated to providing exceptional quality water and protecting public health, and to have this dedication as well as their expertise recognized on a national basis is a wonderful honor. I’m proud of the level of service they help us provide to our customers every day.”
