AWWA Wendell LaDue Utility Safety Award 2019

Valparaiso City Utilities was recently nominated to represent Indiana in the Class II Division of the National American Water Works Association's safety recognition program.  This award, established in honor of Wendell R. LaDue, was created by the AWWA to recognize distinguished water utility safety programs.  The Indiana Section AWWA selects one nominee in each of the four classes (determined by number of employees) based on that organization's established safety and health practices  and their safety record over the past five years. 

​Dr. Shihua Chen, VCU's Water Operations Manager, accepted this nomination at the annual Indiana AWWA Conference in Indianapolis in January.
