Middlesex Water Company has been selected a winner of the New Jersey One Water Awards. The One Water Awards recognize initiatives that exemplify the principles of the One Water approach – the belief that all water, stormwater, drinking water and wastewater has value that can be unlocked by implementing sustainable, inclusive and integrated water resources management practices. Awards were presented at the Annual Conference of Jersey Water Works on Dec. 1, 2017.
Middlesex Water was named the winner in the Private Category for its assessment and repair of a 30-inch transmission main under a major state highway using internal application of a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, the first time this infrastructure rehabilitation technique has been used by a water utility in New Jersey. Other entities receiving 2017 One Water Awards were The City of Hoboken’s Southwest Park and the Landis Sewerage Authority in the Public Category and the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association in the Nonprofit/Academic category.
“We’re honored to be recognized for this sustainable water management project which combined technical innovation and public outreach and collaboration with our numerous partners in support of community priorities,” said Dennis W. Doll, President and CEO.
The inaugural New Jersey One Water Awards were sponsored jointly by Jersey Water Works, the Association of Environmental Authorities of New Jersey and the New Jersey chapter of the American Water Works Association.
