Chesterfield County Utilities Receives Award For Falling Creek Reservoir Dam

March 13, 2014

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA— The Chesterfield County Department of Utilities received the award for the 2013 Best Maintained Publicly Owned Dam in Virginia. The award was presented by the Virginia Lakes and Watershed Association and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (Division of Dam Safety and Floodplain Management) in Richmond yesterday. The competition for this award is an annual event that evaluates dam maintenance programs throughout the state. The purpose of this event is to stress the importance of public safety and proper dam maintenance.

The Falling Creek Dam, as well as the dam at the Swift Creek Reservoir, also maintained by the Chesterfield County Department of Utilities, have both been recognized with this award in previous years. “Receiving this award again is a tremendous honor,” said Roy E. Covington, P.E., director of the Chesterfield County Utilities Department. “The water treatment plant operators and maintenance staff at the Addison-Evans Water Production and Laboratory Facility are to be commended for their rigorous inspections and 24-hour monitoring of the dam.”
