American Water (NYSE: AWK), the nation’s largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company, announced today that energy savings and water reduction initiatives at Fort Belvoir, Va., have been selected for a 2019 U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program award. Company and U.S. Army representatives accepted the award during a ceremony at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C.The American Water and Directorate of Public Works team deployed a three-part series of water conservation measures across its operations at Fort Belvoir, beginning in 2016. The efforts combined the installation of smart water meters, preventative nitrification testing, and a Neutral Output Discharge Elimination System (NO-DES) that allowed for closed-loop water flushing.This resulted in a significant decrease in water consumption despite growth of Fort Belvoir’s working population. Between 2017 and 2018, consumption decreased by 15 percent even as the population on base grew by 6.5 percent. American Water’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles consist of keeping employees safe and injury-free, and developing them to their fullest potential; being a leader in environmental sustainability; being obsessed with outstanding water quality and customer service; and being the trusted source of everything water.The Federal Energy and Water Management Awards recognize individuals, groups, and agencies for their outstanding contributions in the areas of energy efficiency, water conservation, and the use of advanced and renewable energy technologies at federal facilities. American Water and Fort Belvoir’s award was one of five program awards recognized in 2019.

The emails will run monthly through March, unless the customer chooses to unsubscribe from the messages.The animated video will walk customers through their total current charges and total amount due, and highlight water use for the current month compared to the previous month. The video also clarifies water service and usage charges, tiered rates, and surcharges. Finally, the video reminds customers that the Monterey Peninsula faces state-ordered restrictions on its water supply, and offers conservation tips to help achieve a low level of water consumption.
“With tiered rates and a number of surcharges, water bills on the Monterey Peninsula can appear complicated. These videos are an effort to improve our communication about our water charges. We hope customers will use these videos to analyze their water use and better understand their bills,” said External Affairs Manager Catherine Stedman.The videos will be sent via email soon after electronic bills are available online and about 5 days before the customer’s monthly bill arrives in the mail. Exceptions for customers receiving manual meter reads and those with billing disputes or arrangements will apply. The video also contains information about services available on California American Water’s website, such as paperless billing registration, links to rebate applications and other available water conservation programs.
