Bellingham Public Works receives national award

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) presented the City of Bellingham Department of Public Works with the Ten-Year Directors Award at the AWWA’s Annual Conference & Exposition in San Diego, Cal.

Bellingham’s water treatment plant received the national award for maintaining the Directors Award for 10 years, an honor previously achieved by 16 water utilities nationwide.

To maintain Director Award status, each year the city must submit annual water quality data and a report of the improvements and activities that took place at the plant over the year. A presentation by staff to the Bellingham City Council is scheduled for late summer.
