“The efforts of our staff combined with strategic management practices have allowed for successful operations over the years. We are honored to have received such a prestigious NACWA award.” said Ray Orvin, ReWa executive director.

ReWa demonstrated operational resiliency, one of the attributes that allowed for the platinum level award, by completing the Piedmont Regional Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) which condensed three aging facilities into one larger facility. Advanced membrane technology was incorporated at the new facility to provide a higher quality of clean water for the Upstate. ReWa successfully implements the activities and attributes required for the platinum level recognition. For more information about this award as well as these attributes and activities, visit www.nacwa.org.

The Program honors Member Agencies that have adopted successful management practices that address the range of challenges faced by public clean water utilities in today’s competitive environment. For more information about ReWa, visit www.rewaonline.org.
