The PSD received the Facility Excellence Award and its recycled water supervisor recognized for outstanding performance
Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) has once again been honored with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Facility Excellence Award for the PSD’s Recycled Water Plant on Oak Park Drive. This is the PSD’s third straight year earning the award, which recognizes the plant for environmental protection and regulatory compliance. The PSD’s Recycled Water Plant annually recycles about 1 billion gallons of treated wastewater, producing beneficial recycled water that is then used for golf course irrigation and wetlands nourishment, with zero discharge to area waterways.
“Earning the Facility Excellence Award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the PSD’s entire Recycled Water Plant team,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi. “Our pioneering recycled water program on Hilton Head Island continues to be a great example of ‘doing the right thing’ for our island’s water environment.”
Individuals or groups interested in touring the Recycled Water Plant can contact the PSD at (843) 681-5525 or [email protected].
Bob Davis, Hilton Head PSD Recycled Water Supervisor, has been honored with the Water Environment Federation’s William D. Hatfield Award from the Water Environment Association of South Carolina. The statewide award recognizes outstanding performance and professionalism in wastewater treatment plant operations. Named for Dr. William Hatfield, who was Superintendent of the Decatur (IL) Sanitary District, the award goes to treatment plant operators who have distinguished themselves through plant improvements and sharing of knowledge.
Davis joined the PSD in 2016. He previously served as Operations Director with Georgetown County (S.C.) Water & Sewer. He began his career in the water and wastewater industries with International Paper in New York and South Carolina. Davis holds advanced operator licenses in all water and wastewater categories, as well as a B.S. in Biology from Coastal Carolina University and an Associate’s degree in Science from Horry-Georgetown Tech.
He is a father of two and has been married for more than 25 years.
