The BC Water and Wastewater Association has awarded Campbell River’s Ed Travanut with the BC Water & Wastewater Association award for Excellence in the Water and Waste Industry (the Victor M. Terry Operator Award).
Travut was honoured at the BCWWA annual conference and trade show in Whistler last week.
“The BC Water & Waste Association is proud to recognize professionals in the water and wastewater industry in BC and Yukon through our Industry Excellence Awards,” said Tanja McQueen, CEO of the BCWWA.
“We are extremely pleased to honour Ed Travanut with the Victor M. Terry Operator Award in 2016, which recognizes ingenuity and proficiency in facility operations and maintenance. His attention to job planning, streamlined processes, and continuous focus on safety is a great example of how water utility staff go above and beyond to protect public health and the environment.”
Mayor Andy Adams congratulated and thanked Travanut and the City’s water and wastewater departments for their dedication to providing this vital local government service at a council meeting on May 9th.
“On behalf of Council and the citizens of Campbell River, we extend a hearty congratulations and thank-you to Ed for his professionalism and organizational skills, which have enhanced our water department’s performance and improved the control and reliability of the City’s water assets,” said Adams.
