 Plymouth Village Water & Sewer District (PVWSD) Honored with the New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) 2018 Asset Management Achievement Award 

On January 30, 2019, the Plymouth Village Water & Sewer District (PVWSD) was recipient of the 2018 Asset Management Achievement Award., during the Awards Ceremony, at the New England Water Environment Association’s (NEWEA) 89th Annual Conference & Exhibit in Boston, Ma. 

The PVWSD has initiated and implemented an Asset Management program including a Water System Master Plan, horizontal infrastructure mapping utilizing GIS technology, and inventory condition assessment of vertical infrastructure. PVWSD has been able to reduce response time in the field locating assets, reduce energy usage and reduce risks to the systems by conducting preventative maintenance. Superintendent Jason Randall has shared field experiences with peers at several NH Department of Environmental Services Asset Management workshops, funding workshops, and conferences. The PVWSD has recognized, through Asset Management efforts, that addressing aging, undersized, and failing infrastructure is necessary to ensure sustainable water and wastewater systems for the District users. 

“We’re pleased to have awarded PVWSD with the 2018 Asset Management Achievement Award” said NEWEA Executive Director Mary Barry. “Professionals in the water industry work tirelessly, often without recognition, to protect, preserve, and manage New England’s water environment and access to clean water. Additionally, as a volunteer association, so much of what NEWEA does relies on the involvement of our members and volunteers. This award gives us the opportunity to recognize all that PVWSD has contributed to NEWEA and the New England water industry.”
