AWWU was recently invited to provide the keynote address at a recent weekly Make It Monday! forum of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce. Speaking to an audience of business people from throughout Anchorage, General Manager Brett Jokela provided a high level overview of the sources our water, treatment processes for water and wastewater, and the three pillars that support our core purpose of safeguarding the health and welfare of the public and the environment. 

The title of the talk, "Secrets of Buried Treasure" refers to the vast network of underground pipelines that comprise our system of water transmission and distribution, as well as wastewater collection.  In order to maintain this reliable infrastructure, we need to clearly demonstrate our responsibility as a steward of ratepayer funds, and encourage innovation and engagement of a clearly professional workforce. The presentation is intended to underscore our commitment to strategic goals and to further the community's trust in AWWU operations. To view the presentation click here.
