Taber, AB – A utility foreman from the Town of Taber has been awarded the 2022 Alberta Water and Wastewater Operators Association’s (AWWOA) Gerald Samuel Operator of the Year Award.

There is no doubt of his commitment to a high quality of service, and I look forward to seeing his continued efforts to make Taber a great place to grow.”
