LCA Honored With Two Awards

LCA is thrilled to announce two recent awards!

George Warren Fuller Award

Our CEO, Liesel Gross, was recognized in May with the prestigious George Warren Fuller Award at The Pennsylvania Section of the American Water Works Association’s spring conference.

The Fuller Award is presented annually in each AWWA section to a member selected for distinguished service in the water supply field. The award commemorates the career of George Warren Fuller, a celebrated American water and wastewater systems engineer from 1890 to 1934 whose achievements included designing and building the first modern water filtration plant and first chlorination system for disinfecting a U.S. drinking water supply.

Liesel gives her time and talents to the water sector at the local, state, and national levels, contributing in many ways to support the industry.

GFOA Certificate of Achievement

Our second accolade is the Excellence in Financial Reporting award, presented by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada, and recognizes LCA for 2021’s annual comprehensive financial report.

In a press release announcing the honor, the GFOA says the 2021 report met “the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive ‘spirit of full disclosure’ to clearly communicate its financial story … The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.”

LCA is proud to be a multi-year recipient of the GFOA award, which is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
