Recent Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Presidents Workshop Completed in Allentown, PA

Recent Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Presidents Workshop Completed in Allentown, PA

A workshop was conducted on February 23, 2017, in the Allentown, PA area to assist utilities in preparing and submitting applications for consideration of the Presidents award.  The Presidents recognition can be awarded to utilities that adopt and maintain additional voluntary individual filtration goals and have successfully completed the Phase III process with achievement of the Directors Award.

A total of 15 attendees from 8 individual utilities were present to learn from PA-AWWA Partnership Program representatives John Bartol, Paul Zielinski and Gordie Miller the process of gathering information for the application, proper data collection, choosing the correct monitoring locations,  proper data review and interpretation for optimization, and finalizing the application process. The group was also briefed on the goals and requirements of the Phase IV Excellence program.  Gordie Miller, one of the two Phase IV Excellence Awardees in PA, presented his experiences with preparing the final report.  A water treatment plant tour was also offered to attendees.

Keys to the success of the workshop were great audience participation and the open sharing of experiences and ideas.  Other workshops are being considered for Central and Western PA later this year.  The PA-AWWA reps for each area will reach out to utilities prior to the workshop to ensure they are notified.  If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please contact one of the PfSW Representatives.
