During the Fall Conference of the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP), held Nov. 6-7, 2018 in Dalton, the Macon Water Authority (MWA) received the industry’s top honors for both its water and sewer systems.

The MWA and its employees received the 2018 GAWP Collection System of Excellence Platinum Award, as well as the Water Distribution System of Excellence Gold Award.
Industry leaders recognized the MWA with the Platinum Award since the utility achieved a score of 95% or higher – for five consecutive years – on the annual review of its Collection System by GAWP judges, who are fellow water professionals. The MWA received the Gold Award for its Water Distribution System because it graded out at 95% or higher this past year.

The purpose of the GAWP Collection System Award is to recognize those utilities that strive to continually improve their systems through proper management, maintenance, and operation. The criteria for the award follow the practices set forth in the Capacity, Management, Operation, and Maintenance (CMOM) Program, including preventative maintenance, system evaluation, rehabilitation programs, and training, among others.

Similarly, the purpose of the GAWP Water Distribution System Award is to annually recognize water distribution systems that have been operated in an outstanding manner. The MWA won this award within the Large System Category, which consists of all systems within the state that have more than 50,000 customers.
