SWFUCA past president and project leader Bruce Wendorf (R) accepts the community service award from NUCA Treasurer Alex Paris.
The Southwest Florida Utility Contractors Association (SWFUCA) has been awarded the National Utility Contractors’s 2008 William H. Clausen Award for Community Service. The presentation of the award took place on May 20 at the national awards breakfast held in conjunction with NUCA’s 2009 Washington Summit/Spring Board & Committee Meetings, held May 18 to 20 at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, Va.
In 2008, the Southwest Florida Utility Contractors Association continued its long history of giving back to the community by donating the professional services, materials and workforce needed to complete phase one of the underground utilities at Liberty Youth Ranch. Located in Bonita Springs, Fla., the master-planned community provides a permanent home and family for abused, abandoned and neglected children.
“Underground utilities are often ’out of sight, out of mind’,” said Liberty Youth Ranch founder Alan Dimmit. “However, development of the ranch would not be complete without having the numerous underground components installed to provide potable water, process wastewater and [take care of] drainage needs.”
