The Columbus Water Works continues to excel by setting the bar high in industry standards to meet customer expectation, CWW Mission and Strategic Initiatives and water quality goals.  The Georgia Association of Water Professionals recently honored several of the Columbus Water Works’ (CWW) Water Treatment facilities with very prestigious awards. All participating water treatment plants must undergo a rigorous onsite inspection performed by a team of technical experts in the water treatment field.  The exhaustive inspection encompasses numerous criteria, including such items as treatment processes, laboratory testing, record keeping, maintenance, and safety.  Participation in the awards program is voluntary.

Highlighting the facilities awards this year, the North Columbus Water Resource Facility (NCWRF) received the Plant of the Year Award for “Outstanding Operation of a Water Treatment Plant in the category of Surface Water 50 MGD and Greater”.  The NCWRF was built in 1915 and has gone 100 consecutive years without a violation.  The Fort Benning Water Treatment Plant received the Plant of the Year Award for “Outstanding Operation of a Water Treatment Plant in the category of Surface Water 3 -8.99 MGD”.  The new FBWTP is a state of the art membrane treatment facility and this is the first time in history the FBWTP has won the Plant of the Year. The Fort Benning Leyte Well received the Plant of the Year Award for “Outstanding Operation in the category of Ground Water less than 1 MGD”.  The Fort Benning Griswold Range Well received a “Certificate of Achievement Award” for scoring greater than 95% on the plant of the year audit.

The GAWP Gold and Platinum awards are also given to Georgia Water Supply facilities who consistently meet compliance with drinking water regulations. The Fort Benning Water Treatment Plant received a Gold Award in the surface water treatment category for 100% permit compliance. In the ground water well category, Malone 17, Tricolor Range, and Leyte Field Range received a Gold Award for 100 percent permit compliance. Even more impressive are the Platinum Awards given for 100 percent permit compliance for five years or more. In the Surface water category, the NCWRF received a Platinum Award. For the ground water well category, Carmouche Range, Camp Darby, Griswold Range, McKenna Mout Range, Good Hope, and Hastings Range each received the Platinum Award.

“Our employees bring a high level of skill and talent to the job every day. It is our job to make sure they have the equipment and training needed to be successful, but we wouldn’t win these awards if it wasn’t for people doing the work to make sure we have clean and safe drinking water,” said Steve Davis, President Columbus Water Works.

The Georgia Association of Water Professionals is a not-for-profit association whose chief purpose is to educate and assist those who have an interest in the proper management and protection of Georgia’s water resources.
