Department of Water employee receives AWWA award


The American Water Works Association recently presented Edward Doi, a Department of Water civil engineer, with a Presidential Gold Award at its annual conference in Atlanta, Ga.

Doi was recognized for his “extraordinary achievement in membership recruiting” in his role as AWWA’s Hawai‘i section membership chair, a county news release states.

Over the past nine years, Doi has been active in recruiting and retaining AWWA members that live and/or work in Hawai‘i, Guam, American Samoa and other Pacific Basin commonwealths, trusts and territories.

“The American Water Works Association is a great organization,” said Doi. “Our mission is to be good stewards of our water supply, to ensure safe, high quality drinking water and planning for re-use of our water resources. I enjoy working with others who share this common goal.”

AWWA is a national organization that is dedicated to meeting the changing needs of water industry professionals. The members of AWWA are committed to improving practices in design, construction, operation, and management of water works and all related activities.

Anyone interested in joining the American Water Works Association can contact Doi at 245-5417.
