Chesterfield County Receives National Award For Exceptional Drinking-Water Practices

April 16, 2013
Public Affairs

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA—The Chesterfield County Department of Utilities’ Addison-Evans Water Production and Laboratory Facility has been awarded the 2013 Fifteen-Year Partnership for Safe Water Director’s Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the American Water Works Association’s Partnership for Safe Water program.

Participants in the partnership program are committed to providing their customers with superior drinking-water quality that surpasses required federal standards. To attain this level of performance, treatment facilities must continually optimize and improve plant processes and operations and set performance standards well above normal levels. Chesterfield County’s Addison-Evans Water Production and Laboratory Facility was recognized for its plant operations’ data, excellent water quality, and the reporting of treatment and process improvements in calendar year 2012.

Chesterfield County’s facility is the only one in Virginia, and one of only 12 water-treatment plants nationwide, to earn this distinction.

“Please know how proud and grateful I am for all the staff at the Addison-Evans Water Production and Laboratory Facility for keeping the tradition of excellent drinking water through participation in the Partnership program for 15 years,” said Chesterfield County Utilities Department Director Roy E. Covington, P.E. “The staff at this facility is indeed an elite group in our industry and it is so rewarding to provide our customers with this exceptional level of service.”
