The City of Yorkton’s Logan Green Water Management System has won a Utility Excellence Award for Innovative Technologies in the medium/small utility category. The award was presented to Environmental Services Director Michael Buchholzer by the Canadian Water & Wastewater Association (CWWA) in Ottawa last week.
“This marks the fifth award received this year by Yorkton’s new Water Treatment Plant and the Logan Green Water Management System, an outstanding achievement,” said Mayor Bob Maloney. Awards to date have included: the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Award; the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators Willis Award for Innovation; the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan Environmental Excellence Award; and a Saskatchewan Municipal Award for Innovation.
The CWWA awards highlight the accomplishments members are making in their communities. Water and wastewater utilities perform a vital service, protecting both human health and the environment, and the awards offer peer recognition of these efforts.
The CWWA was established in 1986 to represent the common interest of Canada’s municipal water and wastewater systems.
