The American Public Works Association (APWA) formally bestowed accreditation upon the Alameda County Public Works Agency (ACPWA) at the May 22, 2012 Alameda County Board of Supervisors meeting. Past APWA President, Dwayne Kalynchuk of Victoria, British Columbia presented the accreditation placque to ACPWA Director, Daniel Woldesenbet, Ph.D., P.E.
The Alameda County Public Works Agency is only the third public works jurisdiction in the state of California, and one of a few in the nation, to receive APWA accreditation. The accreditation process spanned a two-year timeframe, culminating with an APWA audit in March 2012.
Supervisor Nate Miley, President of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Scott Haggerty, Supervisor Keith Carson, Supervisor Wilma Chan, County Administrator Susan Muranishi, various county department heads and the public were on hand to witness the presentation.
