Huntsville Utilities’ South & Southwest Water Treatment Plants were recognized recently by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Achievement of Area-Wide Optimization Program Performance Goals during 2015. EPA’s Region 4 Chief of Grants and Drinking Water Protection Branch, Ms. Becky Allenbach, notified Huntsville Utilities of this outstanding achievement.
Specifically, Ms. Allenbach recognized the success of Huntsville Utilities’ South and Southwest Water Treatment Plants in meeting goals the Alabama Department of Environmental Management set for optimized drinking water treatment plant performance for turbidity. In meeting and exceeding these goals, the systems customers were provided with “protection against waterborne disease extending above and beyond regulatory requirements.”
Huntsville Utilities’ President and CEO, Mr. Jay C. Stowe, “is proud of the water treatment personnel that achieved this EPA recognition, and provides customers with quality drinking water that exceeds regulatory requirements while also continually optimizing the treatment processes that keep costs low for customers.”
Huntsville Utilities is a publicly-owned, not-for-profit utility company providing electric service to over 180,000 customers, water service to over 94,000 customers, and natural gas service to over 52,000 customers in Huntsville and Madison County, Alabama.
