Camden-based American Water was recently recognized for 12 Partnership for Safe Water awards at several facilities across its national footprint. The awards, which honor the efforts in continuously optimizing water treatment plant and distribution system operation and performance, were announced by the American Water Works Association.

“American Water is honored to receive these awards as part of our ongoing commitment to high standards in delivering safe, clean, reliable and affordable drinking water to our customers,” Lynda DiMenna, chief environmental and safety officer, American Water, said. “This recognition is a true testament to our talented and diverse employees, who work hard every day to provide customers with high-quality water and a culture focused on continuous improvement.”

American Water continually demonstrates its ongoing commitment to improving the quality of drinking water delivered to customers by optimizing its system operations. Through PSW, long-term achievements are celebrated with awards for maintaining consistent, high-quality performance and commitment to optimization at the water treatment plant or distribution system.
