CAYCE, SC – The City of Cayce is excited to announce that they have received the SC Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) Award for the Cayce Water Treatment Plant. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) sponsors this program, which supports utilities in improving disinfection and particle removal for the benefit of public health.
The AWOP Award is an effort to optimize the performance of existing surface water facilities. The program goal is to optimize particle removal and disinfection of all filtration plants to maximize public health protection from microbial contaminants, and reduce risk of illness from contaminated water. This is achieved without capital spending on plant improvements.
City of Cayce Mayor, Elise Partin, stated, “Making sure we are doing our part to ensure that we can provide clean water for our residents is always a top priority. We could not be more thrilled to receive the AWOP Award as we continue to work towards our sustainable water quality goals!”
