Busselton Water has taken out two top awards in the 2020 Australian Water Association Western Australian Water Awards last month.

The business received the Regional Infrastructure Project Innovation Award and managing director Chris Elliott, pictured with fellow award winner Chris Vigus, received the Water Professional of the Year Award.

The infrastructure award recognises the replacement of 40-year-old legacy drinking water treatment filters with new, highly innovative, custom-designed units.

Mr Elliott’s award was for his skilled WA water industry manager experience and setting new benchmarks in workplace safety and sector innovation, while also making a significant contribution at a regional level.

“I’m humbled and honoured to have received this award and feel privileged to have been able to work in the water sector for more than 40 years — the past eight at Busselton Water,” he said. “The awards have proven that being a small team in a regional area is no barrier to innovation and excellence.”
