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.
