RENO, Nev. — With this award, the authority’s Chalk Bluff Water Treatment Plant ranks among the highest performing water treatment plants in the U.S. for individual filter performance.

RENO, Nev. — The Partnership for Safe Water honored Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) with the “Presidents Award,” according to a press release.

With this award, TMWA’s Chalk Bluff Water Treatment Plant ranks among the highest performing water treatment plants in the U.S. for individual filter performance, stated the release.

Only 18 utilities across the nation have achieved this award, continued the release.

The award signifies the highest possible level of performance that can be achieved in the four-phased program, reported the release, and the Presidents Award recognizes the achievement of Phase IV’s “very stringent individual filter performance goals for turbidity.”

“Reaching Presidents Award status is a very significant achievement in our ongoing work to meet water quality performance goals,” said TMWA General Manager Mark Foree. “By joining the ranks as one of only 18 treatment plants in the country, we have taken a large step toward achieving this goal. Special recognition must go to Paul Miller, our manager of water quality and operations, as well as the entire water quality and operations team for their hard work and commitment to delivering high-quality water.”

TMWA also received the Directors Award from the Partnership for Safe Water in 2013, noted the release.
