DETROIT – The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) announced it is one of three utilities in the nation to receive the Platinum Award for Utility Excellence from the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA).

To be invited by AMWA to apply for the Platinum Award, a utility must win the association’s Gold Award, which GLWA received in 2017. It must then, over the next three years, exhibit measurable progress in implementing the industry standard 10 Attributes of Effective Utility Management and Keys to Management Success, as well as a distinctive level of management expertise and expanded utility achievement.
