Pinehills Water Company, Inc. Receives MassDEP Public Water System Award

May 17, 2018    

BOSTON - In recognition of National Drinking Water Week, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) announced the 71 recipients of the annual Public Water Systems Awards during a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House. Each year, MassDEP honors the state’s many dedicated drinking water professionals, while acknowledging certain noteworthy accomplishments that involve excellent water service to the public.

The Pinehills Water Company, which is a private water company, was one of 19 public water systems that received an award for Outstanding Achievement in the “Medium and Large Community System” category.

These public water systems have all demonstrated excellent compliance with state and federal drinking water regulations. In addition to achieving complete compliance with regulations for calendar year 2017, they also have had no violations in the past five years and go above and beyond the required compliance testing by voluntarily testing for secondary contaminants and by ensuring that their systems have adequate capacity to meet the needs of their customers.

“The Commonwealth requires our water systems to deliver safe, clean drinking water, and each of the 776 systems has answered the call with exemplary service again and again,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton. “The Baker-Polito Administration is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s select group of drinking water professionals whose accomplishments in this field rises above the already demanding work and earned this special merit.”

“We take tremendous pride in receiving this award,” says John Judge, President of The Pinehills. “Delivering safe, high-quality water to our residential and business customers is a top priority and one we take very seriously. To be recognized by the state for our efforts is truly an honor.”

“Massachusetts residents and businesses are fortunate to have so many outstanding public water systems that combine to perform a vital essential service,” said MassDEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg. “There are many great public water systems that submit the proper reports and important test results in a timely way. But we have determined that these systems deserve special recognition and commendation today for their excellent service to the public.”
