LONGWOOD, Fla. — The award was presented as part of the 2013 Water Conservation Awards for Excellence by FSAWWA.

LONGWOOD, Fla. — The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) and Pasco County Utilities' collaborative Water Awareness Poster Contest and Community Outreach Program has been named "Best in Class" for the 2013 Water Conservation Awards for Excellence, according to a press release.

The award was presented by the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (FSAWWA), to recognize innovative and outstanding achievements in water efficiency throughout Florida, the release noted.

“This partnership with FGUA allowed Pasco County Utilities to expand its water conservation message far broader than we could by ourselves,” said Bruce Kennedy, assistant county administrator of Pasco County. “The results far exceeded our expectations.”

The program began in 2010, featuring presentations on water production and water and wastewater treatment and students voted on the type of process they'd like to learn more about; more than 2,200 entries were submitted and more than $3,700 in sponsorships were received, the release reported.
