Awards

Excellence in Management Award Program

Print

The Excellence in Management Program was launched in 2003 to acknowledge the significant achievements of NACWA member agencies in the utility management arena. This program honors member agencies that have implemented and sustained, for a continuous three-year period, successful programs that address the range of management challenges faced by public clean water utilities in today’s competitive environment.

In 2012, NACWA’s EIM Program was enhanced with the addition of Resource Efficiency & Protection Activities to the Ten Attributes of an Effectively Managed Utility and the incorporation of Platinum, Gold, and Silver recognition for both large and small utilities
