SUEZ North America Energy Manager to Receive NAWC Living Water Award

Sept. 21, 2015
Elizabeth Watson was recognized for her energy efficiency efforts

The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) announced that Elizabeth Watson of SUEZ North America has been selected as a recipient of the NAWC Living Water Awards. The Living Water Awards program, established in 2012, celebrates exemplary private water industry professionals who are “living water” through their commitment to quality, service and the community.

Watson, energy manager for SUEZ, has spent the past five years studying energy issues at SUEZ sites and looking for new opportunities to reduce energy consumption and lower costs. She has identified several innovative methods—advanced metering and process control, comprehensive energy audits and staff mentoring—to help meet these objectives.

Watson’s efforts have led to the delivery of energy efficient processes, renewable energy systems, green infrastructure solutions and demand response to municipal, institutional and industrial clients across the U.S. Her global vision of the company’s energy consumption is a 5% reduction by 2016. Watson’s focus on energy efficiency not only helps every local SUEZ site, it benefits the environment and everyone.

“While all water professionals carry a great responsibility of being stewards of the environment, most people assume that means protecting the water itself,” said Michael Deane, NAWC executive director. “Elizabeth is a perfect example of someone in our industry that is finding other ways to protect the environment and improve her company’s bottom line at the same time. I applaud her for her ingenuity and perseverance. She is certainly deserving of a Living Water Award.”
