In a press release, Kimberly-Clark was said to be looking to be more water conscious and that’s when Evoqua began working with the facility to “design a treatment solution to provide consistent, high-quality water output to meet their current and future water demands while taking advantage of water reuse opportunities.”

"At Evoqua, we are dedicated to developing and delivering sustainable solutions that help our customers and communities protect the world's most valuable resource — water," said Ron Keating, Evoqua's Chief Executive Officer. "Kimberly-Clark's achievements in reducing and reusing water in their operations make it an exemplary company, and we are honored to be part of their sustainability journey."

To do that, Maumelle’s Kimberly-Clark plant installed a high recovery Reverse Osmosis system to treat water and also used a remote monitoring system to track a deionized water system to ensure “high-quality water output.”

The result was significant savings for both water and chemicals at the facility.

The award was given on March 22, or World Water Day and Maumelle Kimberly-Clark was the winner with other finalists from around being Seaboard Energy in Hugoton, Kansas and Northumbrian Water Group in Durham, England.
