American Water Recognized for Excellence in Water Quality by Partnership for Safe Water

Company demonstrates outstanding commitment to delivering high-quality drinking water to customers

American Water (NYSE: AWK), the nation’s largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company, is proud to announce the achievement of 17 Partnership for Safe Water awards. The awards, which honor the efforts in continuously optimizing water treatment plant and distribution system operation and performance, were recently announced by the American Water Works Association.

“We are honored to have received these recognitions because they demonstrate our commitment to high standards in delivering clean, safe, quality drinking water to our customers while also providing water and wastewater service that is reliable and affordable," said Lynda DiMenna, Chief Environmental and Safety Officer, American Water. "It is a testament to our dedicated employees who work hard every day to provide our customers with high-quality water and a culture focused on continuous improvement.”

As a member of the Partnership for Safe Water, American Water demonstrates its commitment to improve the quality of drinking water delivered to customers by optimizing its system operations.

Long-term achievements of partners are celebrated with Awards for maintaining consistent high-quality performance and commitment to optimization at the treatment plant or in the distribution system. At American Water, 14 plants received recognition for maintaining the Phase III Directors Award for Treatment for 20 years, one plant was recognized for maintaining the Phase III Directors Award for Treatment for 15 years, one plant was recognized for maintaining the Phase III Directors Award for Treatment for 5 years, and one water system was recognized for maintaining the Phase III Directors Award for Distribution System Operations for five years.
