APSP logoThe Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) has announced the 2012 Dr. Neil Lowry Memorial Award has been presented to the Sacramento County Environmental Management Department. 

The $5,000 award honors and recognizes public health officials who have made outstanding contributions to advance the public’s healthy and safe use of recreational water. Recreational water includes pools, spas, hot tubs, natural waters, and water parks.

The award is given in the memory of Dr. Neil Lowry, a long-time member of APSP, who influenced the pool and spa industry for over 25 years as a consultant to government and private industry. 

The Sacramento County Environmental Management Department plans to use the award to provide more workshops for operators and service companies to continue reduction of major violations; create brochures and flyers to support their educational offerings; and develop and fund a survey to identify deficiencies in knowledge, and then tailor training based on results.

“The Sacramento County Environmental Management Department has demonstrated a commitment to the education of pool operators and service companies to assist in them in understanding how to fix and reduce the occurrence of major violations,” said Ken Jenke, regulatory engineer at Zodiac Pools Systems, and subcommittee chair of the Dr. Neil Lowry Memorial Award Program.
