Global Water receives Cityworks’ Excellence in Departmental Practice


Global Water Resources recently was awarded Cityworks’s 2022 Excellence in Departmental Practice Award at Cityworks Innovate Conference in Salt Lake City.

The award was presented by Cityworks, a provider of the leading geographic-information system-centric solution for public-asset management. The award highlights how Global Water demonstrated leadership and creativity in applying public-asset management strategies to daily operations and long-term planning.

Since 2006, Global Water has used Cityworks Server Asset Management System, which enables more-accurate budgeting, precise resource allocation, efficient workflows, expedited customer response and efficient coordination with partner municipalities.

“Cityworks has helped us maintain lower rates and high-quality water and wastewater infrastructure for the communities we serve,” said Ron Fleming, Global Water president and CEO. “They have also enabled us to generate a higher return on our investments in infrastructure and new acquisitions.

“I would like to thank our employees, who spearhead these important efforts every day. This award reflects their dedication to our core values of innovation, continuous improvement and quality customer service.”

Global Water recently announced a new project in development at the Inland Port Arizona mega-site, where Global Water will be working with Procter & Gamble to provide water, wastewater and recycled water services to P&G’s new manufacturing facility. Global Water plans to use Cityworks for this project.

Global Water Resources owns and operates 25 systems which provide water, wastewater and recycled-water services. Its service areas are primarily in growth corridors around metropolitan Phoenix.

Global Water recycles more than 1 billion gallons of water annually.

The company has been recognized for its highly effective implementation of Total Water Management, an integrated approach to managing the water cycle, which involves owning and operating water, wastewater and recycled-water utilities within a geographic area in order to maximize the beneficial use of recycled water. TWM helps protect water supplies in water-scarce areas experiencing population growth.
