Taylors Fire and Sewer District (FSD) announces that the district recently received the Water Environment Association of South Carolina's (WEASC) Excellence in Collection System Operations Award for 2017. The award was presented at the March 2018 South Carolina Environmental Conference held in Myrtle Beach.
According to WEASC, the award is presented to the facility that best demonstrates significant, lasting, and measurable excellence in the operation and maintenance of a collection system or the prevention of the degradation of the water quality in a region, basin, or body of water through improvements or management practices. Only one large system and one small system in S.C. are named recipients of the award each year.
"Receiving this award is a real honor as it is a tribute to the quality service we provide as a district," said Paul Bowen, chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Taylors FSD. "The award emphasizes that successfully operating a collection system requires collaborative efforts among different disciplines."
"Being recognized in this way for the first time as a district is gratifying as it validates the excellence of the work our team does, and does consistently," said Samantha Babb, director of sewer services for the Taylors FSD. "We take our work seriously and will continue to strive to set the bar high for our team and exceed the expectations of those we serve in the Taylors District."
