Andy ParrottOctober 12, 2018 – The City of Midland is pleased to announce that Water Distribution General Supervisor Andrew “Andy” Parrott has been awarded the 2018 Edward Dunbar Rich Service Award by the State of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

Andy holds an S-1 Distribution Operator Certificate, the highest level of classification offered by the State of Michigan, and is a member of the American Water Works Association and the American Backflow Prevention Association.

“Andy’s 25 years of dedication to the City of Midland and our water infrastructure is an incredible milestone,“ says Midland City Manager Brad Kaye. “We are very grateful for the work he does to ensure that Midland residents receive clean, safe drinking water into their homes and businesses every day.”
