Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) has earned the Directors Award from the Partnership for Safe Water for its efforts toward optimization of its drinking water distribution system. The PSD completed a rigorous self-assessment of its drinking water system that was then reviewed by utility peers from around the country. PSD Water Quality Supervisor Scott Moffatt led the self-assessment program. The peer review team stated it was “particularly impressed with the broad representation of (PSD) staff participating in the self-assessment effort.”

The Partnership for Safe Water is a voluntary effort among six national drinking water organizations, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the American Water Works Association, and more than 300 water utilities. The goal of the Partnership is to optimize the protection of public health by improving utility performance beyond regulatory requirements.

“We’re very honored to earn the Partnership for Safe Water Directors Award,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi. “The PSD is committed to delivering the highest-quality water to our customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Engaging in the Partnership for Safe Water helps further our efforts to provide the best product to our customers.”
