CCUSA earns VDH recognition in Operations, Performance for the 17th consecutive year
Campbell County Utilities and Service Authority (CCUSA) has earned the 2021 Virginia Optimization Program Silver Award for its high-quality drinking water treatment from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Office of Drinking Water, for operations and performance excellence for water utilities. CCUSA has received an award through this program each year since the program begin in 2005.
The Silver Award was presented to Michael Templeton, Senior Operator and Jeff Wells, Administrator on May 5 by Dixon Tucker, P.E., VDH District Engineer of VDH’s Field Office in Virginia Beach and Dr. David Dawson, P.E., Deputy Field Director of VDH’s Field Office in Abingdon. CCUSA received the award for the Otter River Drinking Water Plant following an analysis of 12-months of data by the VDH Office of Drinking Water.
Each year, through Virginia’s Optimization Program, the VDH recognizes drinking water plants that perform above and beyond minimum standards by optimizing and running their treatment process efficiently and effectively. The primary purpose of the program is to reduce risks to public health associated with drinking water.
“We are greatly honored to receive this year’s award and are extremely pleased to have earned an award for the past seventeen years,” says Jeff Wells, Administrator of CCUSA. “This award demonstrates a tremendous amount of dedication by our team, as well as CCUSA’s overall commitment to our community for providing top-quality drinking water that meets and exceeds the standards set forth by the VDH.”
