The New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) presented MWRA with its new Asset Management Award at its Annual Conference, held in Boston this week.

This award recognizes the initiative and leadership of MWRA and its staff in the field of facilities asset management, most notably at the Deer Island Treatment Plant.

MWRA's initiated one of the country's first comprehensive and successful facility asset management programs in 2000.

In 2002, MWRA volunteered its staff to share their methodologies with similar agencies and helped to create the NEWEA Asset Management Committee. The committee has since educated utilities across the nation about best practices in facilities asset management through numerous publications, case studies and conferences.

The New England Water Environment Association is a regional not-for-profit organization for wastewater management professionals that promotes education, training opportunities, and public outreach.
