Maguire’s Colorado Water Tank Expert, Chuck Graber, was honored on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, at the 42nd Annual Colorado Rural Water Association Conference with the Friend of CRWA Award.

“Chuck’s dedication to the water industry and support for all communities makes him a perfect partner,” Maguire Vice President of Sales Jamie Mays said. “Smart, hard-working, and always looking out for the communities best interest is what makes Chuck perfect for Colorado but also at Maguire”.

“Anyone who is in the water industry in Colorado is a “friend” of the Colorado Rural Water Association,” Maguire Colorado Water Tank Expert Chuck Graber said. “Claude and the staff of CRWA are true professionals dedicated to providing assistance when and where needed to Colorado communities down to the smallest of water systems. Claude and much of the staff come from the ranks of water professionals with the certifications and knowledge to assist and problem-solve. They understand the challenges of staying in compliance while ensuring safe and reliable drinking water is available to the people of Colorado, visitors, and those passing through.”

One of the main reasons Chuck Graber won this award was because of his training talks and selfless service to water professionals across the state of Colorado. He was also instrumental in getting Maguire webinars accredited with Colorado Certified Water Professionals to provide continuing education units for the past three years for CRWA members across the state of Colorado.

“Working with the water professionals across the state of Colorado is truly an honor,” Graber said. “Their tireless dedication to those they serve and protect is an inspiration. This profession is not the most glamorous but necessary and critical to the well-being of many. Water systems are monitored, maintained, and watched over by a few dedicated and humble individuals who prefer to avoid the limelight. Having the opportunity to meet and know them professionally and personally you realize the importance of their roles and duties. I find it to be meaningful and purposeful. These dedicated professionals deserve much more recognition for their commitment to the industry and their service to others.”

“Chuck is a consummate water professional who has brought knowledge and experience to the Maguire team,” Maguire CEO Gene Jones, Jr. said. “This is a great honor for Chuck and a reflection of our people and our culture. We are proud to continue to serve the water storage needs for the great state of Colorado.”
