From August 18 through 20, 2014, representatives of Kentucky’s public drinking water and wastewater utilities gathered for Kentucky Rural Water Association’s 35th Annual Conference and Exhibition held in Louisville at the Galt House Hotel & Suites. Over 700 utility professionals heard informative presentations by industry experts on how “Water is a Growth Industry.”

Each year, ten water and wastewater utilities are announced during Tuesday morning’s Member Appreciation Breakfast as Wooden Bucket finalists and honored for their outstanding service during the past year.  Tom Fern, State Director and Vernon Brown, Community Programs Director for USDA-Rural Development, were on hand to present all of the honorees with plaques of recognition. Glasgow Water Company was among those honored. Of the ten Wooden Bucket finalists, one utility is singled out to receive Rural Water’s highest honor, the prestigious Wooden Bucket Award.

The Wooden Bucket Award is presented to a water and/or wastewater utility that has made substantial and lasting improvements in providing high levels of customer service and high quality drinking water and wastewater services in its community, including having shown exceptional efforts in meeting the needs of their communities, enhancing their operations, and complying with regulatory requirements. During Wednesday’s Awards Luncheon, Glasgow Water Company was named as the utility most deserving of this award!


General Manager Scott Young stated, “The Glasgow Water Company is privileged to be nominated with the other finalists and honored to win the Wooden Bucket Award.  The award is a demonstration of the direction of our Board of Directors, the vision of our management staff, and an example of the commitment and dedication of all GWC team members.”
