Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2GO has received national recognition as a Utility of the Future Today for 2017, according to a press release.
H2GO was one of 25 water utilities from across the country that were recognized and only two utilities from North Carolina that were named a Utility of the Future, including City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department.
The 25 utilities recognized in 2017 are "transforming operations to meet challenges by recovering resources, engaging in the community, forming untraditional partnerships, and building an internal culture of innovation," H2GO officials said in the release.
The Utility of the Future Today program, launched in 2016, seeks to promote and recognize utilities that are building on a foundation of excellent management and to help small, medium and large utilities transform their operations over time.
H2GO was recognized as a Utility of the Future Today for its Operation Round Up; C.O.R.E; actively participating in N.C. 811; promoting Safe Drinking Water Week and their pro-active efforts to build a Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant, according to officials.
“We are honored and pleased to have been recognized as a ‘Utility of the Future Today’. Our entire H2GO staff and Board have put in a lot of time and resources towards making our community a better place. The things we do, we do because we want to make our home a better place for our friends, family and neighbors. We hope to continue our efforts and develop new initiatives to make our community a better place,” Tyler Wittkofsky, H2GO’s Public Information Officer, said in the release.
H2GO will be recognized during an awards ceremony at the Water Environment Federation's (WEF) 90th annual technical exhibition and conference, called WEFTECH, this October in Chicago.
