The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) recently announced that the Silver Lake Estates Water Treatment Facility has been awarded the 2020 Drinking Water Plant Operations Excellence Award. Each year, the department presents awards to drinking water and domestic wastewater facilities around the state of Florida that demonstrate excellence in operations, maintenance, innovative treatment, waste reduction and pollution prevention, recycling, or other special achievements. These awards recognize facilities that demonstrate a special commitment to excellence in management through dedicated professionalism. The application was submitted back in November of 2020, after a recommendation from the local DEP because of how well Gary Kissick, the facility operator, takes care of the Water Treatment Facility, keeping the facility in excellent conditions!
The Silver Lake Estates Water Treatment Plant is located in Lake “Aqua” FGUA utility system and currently serves 3,500 residents.
We are very proud of Mr. Kissick, who has over 28 years of experience as a licensed operator. We appreciate all of Gary’s hard work and the operational knowledge he has shared with the company!
