On Wednesday, April 23, 2014 during the Alaska Water Wastewater Management Association ’s (AWWMA) Annual Statewide Meeting in Juneau, SGS’ Project Manager, Forest Taylor, was honored with the Laboratory Analyst of the Year Award for Outstanding Job Performance.

AWWMA’s Awards Program recognizes professionals from all levels responsible for the delivery of quality water and wastewater utility services.

The nomination from Forest’s colleagues noted:

"Forest spends a majority of his time on the phone speaking to operators across the state explaining sampling procedures and regulations. If there is any sort of question in regards to water we direct it to Forest, the "water guru".  He is so reliable and trustworthy and his clients and co-workers very much appreciate both him and considerable knowledge."

In accepting the award, Forest replied:

"That's because I have great people backing me up!"
