PIERRE - The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) announced April 25, 2018, that the City of Madison public water system and the system’s operation specialists have been awarded a Drinking Water Certificate of Achievement Award. 

“Safe drinking water delivered to our homes for the price of your water bill is truly a modern day miracle,” said DENR Secretary Steve Pirner. “DENR thanks the best drinking water systems and operation specialists in South Dakota with these awards and urges you to thank them too.” 

The 2017 system’s operation specialists were Richard Nighbert, Jan Tieman, Jerry Mohr, Kester Dahl, David Neu, Shawn McGillivary and Martin Voeltz. 

To qualify for the Drinking Water Certificate of Achievement Award, public water systems and their system operations specialists had to meet all of the following requirements for 2017: 

  • compliance monitoring and reporting,
  • drinking water standards, and 
  • certification requirements.
