TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Water Utilities (TWU) says they have won a prestigious statewide award for best drinking water in the state of Arkansas.
The Arkansas Water Works & Water Environment Association (AWW&WEA) Conference in Hot Springs is where TWU picked up their award.
During the month of February water suppliers in the eight districts participate in drinking water contests. The winner of each district then participates at the state level.
Eight samples were submitted and tested at the AWW&WEA Conference on May 1, resulting in Texarkana Water Utilities being awarded the Best Drinking Water in the State of Arkansas.
The water utility extended its congratulations to employees at the Wright Patman Water Treatment Plant and Millwood Water Treatment Plant for their commitment to serving their customers.
