The Sam Samra Award

The Sam Samra annual Award has been established as a memorial and acknowledgement of the late Sam Samra’s long term contribution, passion and dedication to the water industry. Sam was a great ally of local water utilities in NSW which benefitted from his commitment over a 50 year period.
 

Sam’s legacy is unlikely to be surpassed and it has many aspects. One of the most enduring aspects is performance benchmarking in NSW and on a national level. This award reflects on Sam’s passing and recognises his remarkable work.

Sam was well known for his extensive knowledge and attention to detail and he was highly regarded at the local, state and national levels for his work on performance monitoring and improvement. It is very fitting that the award in his name uses the performance monitoring data to identify the most improved local water utilities over the past 10 years in 4 categories:

  • small ( < 5,000 connected properties) local water utilities, water supply
  • small ( < 5,000 connected properties) local water utilities, sewerage
  • large ( > 5,000 connected properties) local water utilities, water supply
  • large ( > 5,000 connected properties) local water utilities, sewerage
     

Awards will be presented at this year’s LGNSW Water Management Conference dinner at Dubbo on 5 September to the most improved LWU in each of four categories and to the overall most improved LWU. The five winners were determined by rigorous analysis of a decade of data recorded in the NSW Water Supply & Sewerage Performance Monitoring Reports. The data analysis process was developed by DPI Water.
