PID employee stands out from the crowd

bill taylorBill Taylor is a professional. In his 14 years at Paradise Irrigation District, where he currently is Treatment Operations Supervisor, Taylor has worked hard to ensure that consumers have the high-est quality water, produced safely and efficiently.


Now Taylor’s peers know of his great work, too; in March he was presented with the Exemplary Operations Supervisor Award by the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) at the organization’s conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.


PID is a member of AWWA; the two-states covered in this regional section include more than 5,500 members. Taylor is the only one who received an award in that category at the Las Vegas gathering.


“This award recognizes operators working in a supervisory position for dedication toward compliance with public health standards, plant maintenance, development of new ideas, training, and outstanding achievement beyond normal operating responsibilities,” according to a news release from AWWA’s California-Nevada Section


Taylor and his wife,  Dara, live in Magalia with their two dauthers, Emilee (11) and Baylee (4). A 20-year member of Butte County Search and Rescue, Taylor enjoys spending time with his family and four-wheeling.
