An accredited agency:
The Georgetown County Public Services Department has been accredited by the American Public Works Association (APWA) since 2011. Georgetown County was only the second county in South Carolina and the 74th agency in North America to earn the APWA Accreditation.
Georgetown County Public Services began the quest for accreditation in 2008 with a dedicated team that worked diligently to demonstrate compliance practices that met national standards. For Georgetown County’s accreditation, a team of APWA public works professionals completed a thorough evaluation of operations during an October 2011 site visit.
The APWA Accreditation program recognizes public works agencies that go beyond the requirements of the management practices established nationally in the public services industry. On a daily basis, accredited agencies meet or exceed standards of performance in areas such as water distribution, wastewater treatment, street/sewer repair and maintenance, engineering, airport management, stormwater drainage, traffic safety, administrative services and vehicle maintenance.
To maintain accreditation, the Public Services Department must demonstrate continuing compliance with accreditation criteria through semi-annual updates to the APWA.
