Columbus Water Works receives top honor from state

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Water works in conjunction with Ft. Benning received three awards as part of the Plant of the Year award from the Georgia Association of Young Professionals.

The awards given are based on an audit of the plant's operations.

Lab testing, safety records and maintenance of all the equipment at the plants are looked at when deciding who receives the award.

The plant on River Road was given the award based on having 100-percent compliance with operation procedures.

"It's always good to receive an award from your peers that are looking at you and evaluating how well your operation is running," CWW Vice President of Environmental Services Vic Burchfield said.
