City of Williamsburg Wins Gold Award for Water Treatment

gold awardThe City of Williamsburg’s Water Treatment Plant was awarded the 2022 Excellence in Waterworks Operations/Performance Gold Award from the Virginia Department of Health’s Office of Drinking Water.

The Gold Award is given to localities that meet the excellence goals in three categories: filtration, clarification, and backwash.

This is the seventh time the City’s treatment facility has received the top award. It previously won the Gold Award in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021, and has won five Silver and seven Bronze awards in past years. The treatment plant has received recognition for its excellence every year since 2005.

The award is part of the Virginia Optimization Program, which encourages water treatment facilities to exceed minimum regulatory standards.

Dixon Tucker, district engineer with the Office of Drinking Water, presented the Gold Award to Filter Plant Superintendent Brian Tuck at a ceremony in Roanoke, Virginia earlier this month.

The City releases an annual Water Quality Report each spring. Read the 2022 report on the City’s website at
