Due to the uniqueness of the design, the pump house on Lake Peachtree was featured in Metal Architect, (December 1990). The System has added several pump houses since then. The buildings are not only functional but blend with the surroundings.
The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Water System for its component unit financial report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition for excellence in state and local government financial reporting.
In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, the government published an easily readable and efficiently organized component unit financial report. This report satisfied both generally accepted accounting principals and applicable legal requirements.
A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. This is the 17th year that the Water System has received this prestigious award. We believe that our current component unit financial report continues to meet the Certificate of Achievement Program's requirements and we are submitting it to the GFOA to determine its eligibility for another certificate.
