Congratulations to Scott Ring for winning Wastewater Operator of the Year at the 2022 Montana Rural Water Association Convention.
Way to go Scott. We are proud to have you on our team!
During the 2021 Montana Rural Water Association Convention, LCWSD received two awards!
Beth Dotson, our District Secretary, was presented with the Clerk of the Year Award for 2019!
“This award is presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution or benefited the utility or its customers. A newcomer to the water/sewer industry it did not take her long to become familiar with our processes and the customers we serve. Her friendly, can-do attitude has been a great asset to the District”.
Way to go Beth! We are proud to have you on our team!
LCWSD also received the award for the Best Drinking Water in Montana. This competition is part of a national Quality On Tap Campaign that emphasizes the high quality, standards, and consequently taste of rural water. Water samples were judged by a panel of experts on clarity, bouquet, and taste.
LCWSD advanced in the Great American Water Taste Test hosted by the National Rural Water Association in Washington, DC in the spring of 2022. This was the first year that Montana participated in this event. We were honored to represent Montana on a national level.
