Lugoff-Elgin Water Authority (L-EWA) Assistant Superintendent of Water Treatment Randy Watts, (second from left) recently accepted the 2011 Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) award from representatives of the the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Environment Protection Agency. “This award basically guarantees that there is nothing wrong with our water,” L-EWA General Manager Mike Hancock said. “It encourages facilities to reach a higher standard.” DHEC initiated the program in 1997 in an effort to optimize the performance of existing surface water treatment facilities. The goals of AWOP are to reduce the risk of a waterborne disease outbreak and emphasize improving the operation of existing facilities rather than building new facilities. L-EWA is a special purpose district that serves more than 7,300 customers with water in Kershaw, Fairfield and Richland counties.
