Gain recognition for your safety efforts...Nominate your water facility today for the VA AWWA Larry Gordon Safety Award! Virginia is proud of last year’s winner, Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority, Crozet Water Treatment Plant.  Could your utility win this year?  The nominations deadline is May 31,2024.


This award will be presented to a Virginia waterworks facility that promotes an active and effective safety program.


Your facility's current safety record (OSHA 300 log) is important, but documentation of your safety program is the main consideration.  Your policies, procedures, housekeeping and training records are equally important.  All these elements will be reviewed during an on-site interview by the Safety team. The committee will rank the information presented during the interview and during a facility walkthrough.  The final selection will be based on the overall objective ranking.

The winner will be announced and presented at JAM in September.  If you have any questions on this nomination form or the process, please feel free to contact Ronnie Baker at 540-507-7325 or
