Nominations Request for the 2024 Tribal Operator of the Year

Nomination Request for the 2024 Tribal Operator of the Year

Have you noticed a water/wastewater operator working in Indian Country…
• Going above and beyond their assigned job duties?
• Lending support to a co-worker or staff member?
• Providing assistance to another utility?
• Volunteering in the community?
• Going the extra mile in any form?

Here is your chance to acknowledge and celebrate their efforts and hard work. The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. (ITCA) is requesting nominations for the 2024 Tribal Water/Wastewater Operator of the Year Award.

Anyone is welcome to submit a nomination to show appreciation for the quality and integrity of the work done by an operator of a water or wastewater system serving fewer than 5,501 people and that is located on Tribal lands within the ITCA National Tribal Water Systems Programs service area, which includes USEPA Regions 5 through 10. Nominations should be submitted by those who have personally witnessed the great work of the operator being nominated. Nomination of a utility manager is welcome if the person conducts the day to day operations and maintenance of a small rural Tribal water/wastewater system.

A committee of volunteer Tribal water/wastewater operators will review the nominations and select the winner of the Tribal Operatory of the Year 2024 Award. All nominees and the selected winner will be announced and recognized at the Awards Ceremony on September 13, 2024, during the National Tribal Water Utilities Workgroup Meeting.

Nomination Deadline: July 10, 2024
