Congratulations to the entire Water Department team for winning two(2) awards from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA). NACWA is the nation’s recognized leader in legislative, regulatory and legal clean water advocacy – helping ensure a strong, sustainable clean water future.

These annual awards recognize organizations that have outstanding contributions to environmental protection and the clean water community. The two National Environmental Achievement Awards the Water Department won are:

To qualify, the program, publication, video or e-media must have been produced by the agency staff or by an outside vendor at the express direction of the agency and must cover some aspect of the agency’s operations. Materials must have been produced for general use or distribution.
  2. Workforce Development Award – This award is presented for an outstanding project or program which embodies effective, sustainable solutions that address the need for a qualified, diverse, and knowledgeable utility workforce.

Special Congratulatory Message From Dan Grimsbo, Executive Director of Water Utilities – “As many know, I am a strong advocate for training and specifically for achieving one’s Professional License, Certification and Education. Many across the Water department have stepped up to earned their professional certifications.  In addition, the entire team has been working hard for public outreach and education through multiple channels to include social media, the City’s webpage, providing presentations at town hall meetings, conferences, and community groups, and in-person with utilities first responders, booths at HEB and City Hall at the Mall, to name a few.  Bravo Zulu (BZ!) to the entire team for your personal achievements and team achievements that make this City a great place to work and without fail, providing highest quality services to our residents every single day.”
