Middlesex Water Company, a provider of water and wastewater and related services primarily in New Jersey and Delaware, United States (U.S.), has been selected as a winner of the New Jersey One Water Awards, sponsored jointly by Jersey Water Works, the Association of Environmental Authorities of New Jersey, as well as the New Jersey chapter of the American Water Works Association.
The One Water Awards recognises 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.
Middlesex Water was named the winner in the Private category for its assessment and repair of a 30-inch (76-centimetre) transmission main under a major state highway using internal application of a carbon fibre-reinforced polymer, the first time this infrastructure rehabilitation technique has been used by a water utility in New Jersey.
Other entities that received the 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 Non-profit/Academic Category.
“We’re honoured to be recognised for this sustainable water management project which combined technical innovation and public outreach and collaboration with our numerous partners in support of community priorities,” Dennis W. Doll, President and CEO of Middlesex Water Company, said. “We thank all of our partners for their assistance, and we congratulate the honourees in the other categories and are grateful for the recognition.”
