Lowell-based water utility Beaver Water District has been recognized by the American Water Works Association’s Partnership for Safe Water for maintaining the Directors Award status for the past five years.

The five-year Directors Award for Water Treatment is given to plants in good standing that have maintained this level of performance, according to a news release.

“The Partnership’s award-winning utilities demonstrate an outstanding commitment to delivering superior quality drinking water to customers,” according to the website for the American Water Works Association. “Utilities that subscribe to the Partnership are dedicated to providing high-quality water to customers, even beyond regulatory requirements.”

The American Water Works Association’s Partnership for Safe Water is an alliance of six drinking water organizations and a leader in drinking water optimization, public health protection and utility recognition, according to the news release.

For more than 50 years, the Beaver Water District has supplied drinking water sourced from Beaver Lake to Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville. These cities pump, store, distribute and resell the water to more than 350,000 customers, including people and industries in the cities and surrounding areas.
