At its 94th annual Water Conference and Exhibition in Phoenix, the AZ Water Association recognized EPCOR USA with 41 safety and operational excellence awards for water and wastewater facilities across the company’s Arizona territories.
The AZ Water Association presents water awards of honor every year in the categories of water distribution systems, water treatment, wastewater collection systems and wastewater treatment. The 41 new distinctions bring EPCOR’s total number of awards from the AZ Water Association to more than 200.
In addition to these honors for facilities, an EPCOR team member received individual accolades. Rigo Camacho was named Operations Supervisor of the Year for Large Systems for his dedication and leadership as operations supervisor at EPCOR’s Central Division, which services areas in the West Valley.
“These facility awards and Rigo’s recognition as an operational leader demonstrate our team’s commitment to making sure our customers have clean, safe water and wastewater services,” said EPCOR President Joe Gysel.
“That’s been especially important in the last year, and we’re very proud to be recognized again by the AZ Water Association.”
