(DENVER) -- The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today it has won a Bronze EXCEL Award for a Journal - American Water Works Association feature article entitled “Flint Water Crisis: What Happened and Why?”. This is the second consecutive year AWWA has won a Bronze EXCEL Award for a Journal AWWA feature article.



Journal AWWA remains the preeminent scholarly publication for water professionals worldwide,” said Kenneth L. Mercer, Editor-in-Chief. “Publication of important pieces like the 2016 feature article on the Flint crisis highlights not only the challenges the water industry faces but also several lessons learned from this tragedy.



The Association Media & Publishing’s EXCEL Awards acknowledge excellence in non-profit association media, publications, marketing and communications.



“Providing timely content in Journal AWWA is one such way AWWA continues to help members improve their local water quality, especially in the aftermath of the Flint, Mich. crisis,” said AWWA CEO David LaFrance.



The EXCEL Awards were presented last month in Arlington, Va.
