Hilton Head Public Service District earns Wastewater System of the Year

PSD Recycled Water Superintendent Bob Davis holds the “Wastewater System of the Year” award presented by the South Carolina Rural Water Association (SCRWA).

Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) earned the “Wastewater System of the Year” award from the South Carolina Rural Water Association (SCRWA) for 2018. The PSD was recognized for several advancements, including: construction of two regional sewer lift stations using South Carolina Clean Water Revolving Fund financing of $1.5 million at 1.9% over 20 years; constructing about 10 miles of sewer mains in previously unserved areas in a partnership involving approximately $10 million in funding from the Town of Hilton Head Island and a $3-million charitable campaign on the part of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry’s Project SAFE (Sewer Access for Everyone) charitable fund; and implementing dissolved-oxygen based aeration to save energy during the wastewater treatment process.

“This honor is a reflection of the dedication of the PSD and our community to work for a healthy island environment through sustainable sanitary sewer, wastewater treatment, and recycled water services,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi.

The SCRWA Awards of Excellence selections were based on nominations from water and wastewater system personnel.
