Utility Performance and Service Awards
The AMWA Gold Awards for Exceptional Utility Performance and Platinum Awards for Utility Excellence recognize the large public drinking water systems that exhibit high levels of performance in the areas of product quality, customer satisfaction, employee and leadership development, operational optimization, financial viability, community sustainability, operational resiliency, infrastructure stability, stakeholder understanding and support, and water resource adequacy. These are the ten Attributes of Effectively Managed Utilities identified in 2007 by a blue ribbon panel of water and wastewater utility executives commissioned by EPA, AMWA and other water sector associations. Gold and Platinum Award winners also show achievement in the areas of leadership, strategic business planning, organizational approaches, measurement, and a continual improvement management framework.

The AMWA Donald R. Boyd Award is established to acknowledge extraordinary personal service in the drinking water quality field.
