The city of Camden water treatment plant recently received the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) Award. The goal of the program is to optimize particle removal and disinfection at all filtration plants to maximize public health protection. DHEC initiated AWOP in 1997 to optimize the performance of existing surface water treatment facilities and to reduce the risk of a waterborne disease outbreak.

“The city of Camden’s water professionals are dedicated to treating the water to a higher standard,” Camden Director of Public Works Tom Couch said.

The award was presented to Water Plant Manager David Enlow by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency representative Brian Smith and DHEC Water Bureau Chief David Wilson, on Wednesday. This marks the fourth time the city of Camden has received the award. It was also awarded in 2007, 2009 and 2011.
