New Jersey American Water’s Jumping Brook Water Treatment Plant in Monmouth County has earned a national award for maintaining the Directors Award of recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water.
The Partnership for Safe Water is a national volunteer initiative developed by the U.S. EPA and other water organizations. The partnership represents water suppliers striving to provide their communities with drinking water quality that surpasses the required federal standards.
The Directors Award is presented to water systems that have completed a successful review in the Partnership's Self-Assessment and Peer Review phase, a phase in which utilities examine the capabilities of their treatment plant operation and administration and then create a plan for implementing improvements. New Jersey American Water’s Jumping Brook Water Treatment Plant has maintained the Directors Award for five consecutive years.
“Maintaining Directors Award status for five years demonstrates our philosophy of constant vigilance to improve water quality,” said Walter Lynch, president of New Jersey American Water. “We are thrilled to receive national recognition for this ongoing commitment to serve our customers the best in water quality possible.”
New Jersey American Water’s ongoing participation in the program includes a rigorous review of treatment practices developed by national experts, and also includes a four-step, self assessment and peer review process.
