The International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) honored two of its most exceptional and valued supporters with a special IWSH Award at IAPMO’s 90th annual Education and Business Conference and 2019 ASSE International Annual Meeting. Courtenay Eichhorst, Business Manager at UA Local Union No. 412 in Albuquerque, NM, was recognized for his dedicated support toward the development of the first US Community Plumbing Challenge (CPC) program, a collaboration with the DigDeep Navajo Water Project at various sites across the Navajo Nation, since October 2018. Eichhorst has organized and facilitated the participation of more than 10 volunteers from UA Local 412 in the Navajo Nation program so far and is committed to continuing this partnership for future CPC projects.
Plumbers & Steamfitters UA Local 400, a local union consisting of about 2,000 members serving 18 counties in Northeast Wisconsin, also received an IWSH Award. UA 400 has been a consistent CPC supporter and sponsor since the inception of the program in 2015 and has been represented in all international projects over the past five years, including events in India, South Africa, Indonesia and the United States.
