In observance of Water and Wastewater Workers of Iowa Week, which runs July 17 through July 23, the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities (IAMU) recognizes water utility and wastewater utility workers from across the state for their everyday commitment to representing their community, protecting public health, and caring for the environment.

“The water and wastewater utility workers are often overlooked members of the community,” said Timothy Whipple, general counsel for IAMU. “This week is about recognizing our member utilities’ employees and giving them the thanks they deserve for their tireless service and efforts to their communities.”

Governor Terry Branstad issued the proclamation on Thursday, May 19. Governor Branstad’s proclamation stated that science-based practices continue to be a vital element in improving the quality of life and preserving and protecting public health in the state. The proclamation also stated that the wastewater workforce have dedicated themselves to applying environmental science to enhance drinking and recreational waters of Iowa.

Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities members will be recognizing their workers this week across Iowa. With over 500 water utility members within the association, employees will be recognized for their hard work and dedication to their communities.
