Home Press Release Shaw's Tuftex division named Recycled Water Customer of the Year

Santa Fe Springs, Calif. — Shaw’s Tuftex division received the Recycled Water Customer of the Year Award from the WateReuse Associationʼs California Section during the organizationʼs annual Awards of Excellence ceremony earlier this month.

The award recognizes a recycled water user that has advanced the acceptance of water reuse through unique applications and/or innovative marketing, demonstrating how recycled water benefits the public and contributes to its business services.

Nominated by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District, Tuftexʼs efforts increased its use of recycled water from an average of 25.9% (out of total water consumption) in 2012 to 59.4% in 2013, a savings of more than 63 million gallons of fresh water during the calendar year. Tuftex has continued to make strides in recent months, currently using nearly 80% reclaimed water. Shaw’s aggressive performance goals include water reuse to help drive the company toward an even lower-impact future.

According to Shaw, the company is working to reduce its water intensity 50% companywide by 2030.

“Shaw is honored to receive the Recycled Water Customer of the Year Award and once again be recognized for our groundbreaking efforts to manage resources efficiently across our divisions and our physical operations,” said Paul Murray, Shaw vice president of sustainability and environmental affairs.

The WateReuse awards ceremony was held during the WateReuse California Annual Conference, the premier statewide conference devoted to sustaining supplies through water recycling and desalination. The conference was designed for individuals, organizations and agencies that are associated with or interested in the design, management, operation and use of water recycling and desalination facilities and projects in California.
