It's time to nominate someone for an award!

Every year the Alaska Rural Water Association presents awards at our Annual Training Conference to member systems and operators that have done an outstanding job in the water and wastewater field. The time has come to nominate those you feel are deserving of this special recognition. In addition to individual operator awards, we also present awards to member systems that have shown initiative and have taken a proactive approach in developing a plan to protect their drinking water sources from potential contaminants through source water protection efforts. This is your opportunity to give recognition for outstanding performance and professionalism where it is deserved!
