Public Works staff presented with award

Public Works staff presented with award

Turn on the tap, and clean water flows out. When you have reliable water service, it’s easy to take the staff and infrastructure that brings water to Westminster homes and businesses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for granted. 

At their July 22 meeting, City Council highlighted this critical city service by recognizing the Semper Water Treatment Facility and Utility Operations Water Distribution staff for receiving the Directors Award from the Partnership for Safe Water. The prestigious industry award is given for outperforming state and federal requirements for treatment plant and distribution system operations. This award reflects the city's commitment and dedication to providing safe, high-quality and compliant drinking water to its customers.

Thank you to these crews for their work providing some of the best drinking water in the country!

The Semper Water Treatment Facility is capable of treating 44 million gallons per day using conventional filtration technology. The Northwest Water Treatment Facility is capable of treating up to 15 million gallons per day using state-of-the-art membrane micro-filtration. Average daily water consumption for the city is currently 16 million gallons per day with a peak day of up to 44 million gallons per day.
