David McAlpin, manager of the Blountsville Utility Board, was named the Wastewater Operator of the Year last week. He was chosen for the honor by a panel of judges appointed by the Alabama Rural Water Association (ARWA). The award was presented at the ARWA Conference in Montgomery for McAlpin’s efforts in improving the town’s lagoon over the past six years. McAlpin credits his award to having a great staff and a supportive board.
