by Nola Sizemore Staff Writer
Nominated for the prestigious Wooden Bucket Award, Black Mountain Utility District (BMUD) was in the top 10 finalists for the award out of over 300 utilities across the state.
The Wooden Bucket finalists are honored for their “outstanding service during the past year,” according to the Kentucky Rural Water Association (KRWA). Each finalist was presented with plaques of recognition.
“The award is presented to a water and/or wastewater utility that has made substantial and lasting improvements in providing high levels of customer service and high quality drinking water, and wastewater services in its community, including having shown exceptional efforts in meeting the needs of their communities, enhancing their operations and complying with regulatory requirements,” said officials from the KRWA.
Ray Metcalfe, BMUD administrator, said he was happy to see BMUD recognized for their efforts.
“Black Mountain Utility District is not just one person,” said Metcalfe. “It’s everyone here — they are all an intricate part of this work — from the ladies out front to the guys out in the field. It’s everyone working together to make this happen — it’s teamwork. I’ve very proud of everyone.”
Metcalfe said BMUD was established approximately 25 years ago with only three employees and just a few customers. He said they now have nine employees and serve 3,500 customers.
