It is a tradition at American Water to strive for excellence. Whether we are keeping water flowing to homes and communities, helping a customer with a question or concern or volunteering our time to clean up a local river, we strive to exceed our own high standards. In addition to the everyday things we do to support our tradition of excellence, there are a number of things that we are especially proud of. Here are a few examples:
2009 Global Water Award:
In 2009, American Water was named Water Company of the Year by Global Water Intelligence, an organization that provides analysis and reports on the international water industry.
Partnership for Safe Water:
As a member of Partnership for Safe Water, American Water demonstrates a commitment to providing drinking water of a quality better than what is required by federal standards. Participation is voluntary, but requires extensive, ongoing efforts to evaluate all treatment processes and the quality of water provided to customers. To date, 84 of our treatment plants have received recognition from the Partnership for providing superior levels of water quality.
