Water operator wins award

Eric Johnson, Operations Supervisor for the Kingsbury General Improvement District, won the Nevada Rural Water Association’s Operator of the Year award.

This award is given to one operator in Nevada each year, honoring the dedication and expertise of water operators throughout the state of Nevada.

Kingsbury G.I.D. is the water supplier for the residents of the Stateline area, and is one of the most complex water treatment and distribution systems in Northern Nevada. The water is treated by an ozone disinfection process before being pumped over 1,500 feet vertically through a series of tanks and pumping stations to reach the customers’ homes on upper Kingsbury.

The award reflects the quality of service and commitment given by Eric and the rest of the KGID staff and crew to the residents of the Kingsbury area.
