At the Annual Pacific Water & Wastewater Association (PWWA) Conference held in Auckland, NZ in November CPUC won the award for the most improved water and wastewater utility in the Pacific. Lucio Hallers and Paul Howell were present at the conference to receive the award.
The award was based on operational data – water production volume and quality has significantly improved since 2011 due to a borehole remediation project and introduction of chlorination; likewise sewer overflows have significantly reduced since the sewer lift stations in Weno have been rehabilitated – further upgrades and improvements are underway in FY2013.
Lucio and Paul are targeting the award for best water and wastewater utility in the Pacific at next years conference.
The Board of CPUC congratulated the water and sewerage team for their efforts and achievements and encouraged them to keep on delivering improvements.
