New Jersey American Water’s Jumping Brook Treatment Plant in Neptune, N.J., received the 15-Year Directors Award of Recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water, a program developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) and associated partner organizations to guide water suppliers toward improving water quality by optimizing system operations.

The Jumping Brook Treatment Plant was presented this award for successfully completing the self-assessment and peer review phase of the partnership program, which includes a comprehensive evaluation of treatment plant operations and performance, identification of performance limiting factors, and the development of action plans to achieve optimization. The plant will be one of a select group of utilities honored by the partnership at AWWA’s annual conference.

“We are very honored to receive this award,” said Kevin Keane, senior director of operations for New Jersey American Water. “Our goal is to continually strive to optimize operations and improve the quality of water we deliver to our customers. Achievement of the Directors Award demonstrates our ongoing commitment to protecting public health.”

The Partnership for Safe Water is a voluntary, self-assessment, and optimization program for water treatment plant and distribution system operations. More than 250 utility subscribers, collectively serving more than 100 million people, are committed to the partnership’s goals of providing safe, high-quality drinking water through achieving operational excellence in water treatment. Partnership members participate in a rigorous four-phase self-assessment and peer review process developed by industry experts and are recognized nationally for their commitment to delivering safe water to their communities.
