FAIRFIELD — The North Bay Regional Water Treatment Plant has received the Directors Award of Recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water, a program developed by the Environmental Protection Agency, American Water Works Association and other organizations to guide water suppliers toward improving water quality by optimizing system operations.
The plant, co-owned by the cities of Fairfield and Vacaville and operated by Fairfield, was presented this award for successfully completing the Self-Assessment and Peer Review phase of the partnership program, a phase that includes comprehensive evaluation of treatment plant operations and performance, identification of performance limiting factors and the development of action plans to achieve optimization.
“We are honored to receive this award,” said Felix Riesenberg, assistant director of Fairfield Public Works, in a press release. “Our utility’s goal is to continually strive to optimize operations and improve the quality of water we deliver to our citizens. Achievement of the Directors Award demonstrates our cities’ ongoing commitment to public safety.”
The Partnership for Safe Water is a voluntary self-assessment and optimization program with more than 220 utilities as members. It will honor the North Bay Regional Water Treatment Plant and other utilities at the annual American Water Works Association conference in June.
