PW Service Authority recognized with national environmental awards

Prince William County Service Authority has received two National Environmental Achievement Awards—one for its environmental education program for youth and a second for maintenance of PWCSA high-risk sewer pipes.

The awards were presented by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), The awards recognize individual NACWA members and utilities who have made outstanding contributions to environmental protection, communities, ratepayers and the water sector.

In the Operations & Environmental Performance category, PWCSA was recognized as an industry leader in Asset Management Analytics. This program collects and consolidates data to determine which sewer gravity pipes are at highest risk of breaking or leaking. Potential consequences are also analyzed. Thus, the Service Authority is better able to prioritize maintenance and replacement for high-risk sewer pipe segments.

“It’s exciting to know our Asset Management Analytics Program is cutting edge for our industry,” said Nathan Griffin, PWCSA’s Senior Hydraulic Modeler. “It’s encouraging to know we are an industry leader, blazing this path to a more data-driven approach to asset replacement.”

In the Public Information & Education category, the Service Authority’s H2GoKids online learning hub also earned national recognition. This environmental education program combines resources, student activities, and online and pre-recorded classroom presentations about such topics as watersheds, drinking water and wastewater treatment.
