Gold Award for Exceptional Utility Performance
The AMWA Gold Awards for Exceptional Utility Performance 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, enterprise resiliency, infrastructure strategy and performance, stakeholder understanding and support, and water resource sustainability. 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 and updated in 2016.
Gold Award winners also show achievement in the areas of leadership, strategic business planning, knowledge management, measurement, and continual improvement management.
All AMWA member utilities that have never won a Gold Award are eligible to apply for the Gold Award for Exceptional Utility Performance. For more information about the Gold Awards contact, Carolyn Peterson in AMWA’s national office.
