SAWS Tapped for Leading Utilities of the World

San Antonio Water System is now the only utility in Texas — and one of a handful in the nation — to join the ranks of the Leading Utilities of the World, an exclusive global network of water and wastewater utilities.

Members of the LUOW represent the gold standard of utility innovation and performance throughout the developed world’s water sector and include representatives from Denmark, Norway, Scotland, The Netherlands, Budapest, Japan, Australia and Singapore. In the United States, members include Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York — and now San Antonio.

image“This honor says a lot about the hard work and dedication of our employees and the leadership of the Board of Trustees,” said Robert R. Puente, SAWS President/CEO, who accepted the honor at the induction ceremony during the American Water Summit in Austin, Nov. 30.

“The application and interview process were challenging, but it was well worth it to join this extraordinary group,” said Puente. “The sharing of information with these other top-performing utilities will yield great benefits to our customers down the road.”

LUOW inductees must be nominated by other gold- standard utilities and complete a rigorous interview and selection process. To be selected, a utility must demonstrate outstanding innovation in at least three areas of management and have an ambition to continue to drive performance in the years to come.
