Water and wastewater utility installs information management software
The Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) is the largest water and wastewater utility in Alaska, serving Anchorage, Chugiak-Eagle River, Peters Creek, Eklutna and Girdwood. AWWU collects water from two major surface watersheds—Eklutna Lake and Ship Creek—and several deep underground wells. The region is blessed with abundant, pristine water sources that industries and more than 260,000 people rely on.
AWWU operates two water treatment facilities (WTFs), three wastewater treatment facilities (WWTFs), water distribution and wastewater collection systems, a water quality lab and an industrial pretreatment program. Excellence through innovation and a commitment to continuous improvement are the overarching goals. Sustaining excellence requires technologies that automate data gathering and analysis so operators, supervisors and upper management can focus on their jobs and make process improvements and business decisions based on trusted information.
