The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne would like to congratulate Patrick David for recently being named “Operator of the Year” by the Aboriginal Water & Wastewater Association of Ontario (AWWAO).


Mr. David is the Operator in Charge (OIC) of the St. Regis Water Treatment Plan, part of MCA’s Water/Wastewater Program. As an OIC, he is tasked with maintaining the water plan’s water-making ability and flow to the community on a daily basis. 


This year, Mr. David ensured that safe potable water was delivered to homes throughout the period of unknown water leakage that was eventually located and repaired.


MCA’s management and Council nominated Mr. David for the AWWAO’s Paul Strohack Operator of the Year Award, and he received the honor at the annual Aboriginal Water and Wastewater Association of Ontario conference held in Sault Saint Marie from April 16-18, 2024.


Please join us in congratulating Mr. David on his award and showing our thankfulness to him for the important job he performs for our benefit.
