BOISE, ID, July 18, 2007 -- United Water Idaho General Manager Greg Wyatt received the 2007 George Warren Fuller Award from the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Water Works Association. The AWWA's highest honor was presented to Wyatt at the annual conference in Toronto last week.

The award noted Wyatt's commitment to the Pacific Northwest Section, AWWA and the Boise community. It also highlighted the role he played as Chairman of the Budget and Finance committee, what it called "a tedious but essential job." He was elected to the Section Board of Trustees in 2003, and chaired the Local Arrangements Committee when Boise hosted the region's annual conference in 2003.

The award citation concludes, "As you can see, whatever role or special need the Section has our recipient has always been willing to 'step up' and fill that void. Finally, he has been an active mentor for others in his utility by allowing and encouraging them to be active in our Section."

"We are very proud of all that Greg has accomplished with the AWWA as well as within the Boise community," said Robert J. Iacullo, chief operating officer of United Water. "Greg is a long-standing employee of United Water with significant experience in our company and in our industry, and we are delighted to see his hard work and effort rewarded by the AWWA."

AWWA established the George Warren Fuller Award to honor individuals for their Distinguished Service in the Water Supply Field, Diplomatic Talent, Constructive Leadership and Creative and Innovative Ideas. Wyatt is the second United Water employee to receive the Fuller award.
