City water treatment facilities earn Partnership for Safe Water award
The City of Boulder’s water treatment facilities at Betasso and Boulder Reservoir have earned the Partnership for Safe Water’s Phase III Directors Award, in recognition of their demonstrated commitment to water quality and consumer safety. Only seven other water treatment facilities in the State of Colorado have received this award for optimizing water treatment facility performance.
To be eligible for the award, the two water treatment facilities successfully completed the Phase III self-assessment process, as required by the Partnership, which required the facilities to examine operations and identify areas for performance improvement.
The Partnership praised the facilities for their strong commitment to operational excellence and to protecting the health of water customers in Boulder.
The Partnership for Safe Water is a unique cooperative organization designed to support water treatment facilities in voluntarily enhancing their water systems performance to help protect the health of customers. The partnership is between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, National Association of Water Companies and Association of State Drinking Water Administrators. Visit the Partnership for Safe Water website to learn more.
