Date:1/9/2008

HOBOKEN, N.J. The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) held its annual conference, Oct. 8, 2007, during which NAWC President Bob Iacullo presented the 2007 Management Innovation Awards. This annual competition provides member companies the opportunity to share innovative approaches to issues relevant to the water industry. This years second-prize award went to United Water for the entry Senior Design and University Marketing Program, a project developed in conjunction with Stevens Institute of Technology, a renowned engineering university in the United Water New Jersey service area. Robyn Ashmen, Manager for Strategic Marketing at United Water, headed the project.

Stevens and United Water developed a partnership to conduct research in the development of better water quality, led by faculty from the Stevens Center for Environmental Systems and involving an Environmental Engineering Senior Design Team. The Stevens Senior Design Program offers corporate-sponsored projects that allow Stevens Seniors to address current challenges that benefit society. This partnership served as the foundation for United Waters Senior Design and University Marketing Program, which in addition to providing better water quality for customers, also addresses staffing needs, identifying future hires, and fostering community relationships.

Dr. Xiaoguang Meng, Professor for the Center for Environmental Systems, served as faculty advisor for the Stevens Environmental Engineering Senior Design Team, which tested a process of removing radionuclides from watera development that resulted in a savings of $240,000 for United Water.

The Stevens Environmental Engineering Senior Design Team systematically evaluated the operation parameters of the filtration system and the materials used in the water treatment. Based on their experimental results, recommendations were made for optimization of the system to improve its performance. A second phase of research will be conducted t
