Mike Ricks of Franklin-based Water Solutions Unlimited was presented with the Associate Member of the Year award from Alliance of Indiana Rural Water during their spring conference in March in French Lick.
The alliance is a nonprofit membership association of more than 700 water and wastewater systems and related professionals. The honor is presented to an associate member who has gone to extraordinary effort on behalf of the organization. Ricks is in charge of the raffle committee and has helped to grow the Sportsman’s Raffle fundraiser in a few years.
The alliance provides training and on-site technical assistance on Safe Drinking Water Act compliance issues, public health protection, managerial issues, financial issues and operational issues to water and wastewater systems in Indiana that serve populations of less than 10,000.
