Meet Angelita Fasnacht, Winner of the 2018 NAWC Living Water Award.

The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) is pleased to announce American Water’s Angelita Fasnacht as the winner of the 2018 NAWC Living Water Awards. The announcement was made earlier this month during the 2018 NAWC Water Summit in San Antonio, Texas. Fasnacht began her career in the water industry in 1998, working as the head of the water company in the Departmento del Huila, Colombia. During her time in that position, approximately 200 projects were completed and 50,000 people received the benefit of safe, clean and affordable water. In 2000, Fasnacht was kidnapped for 32 days by a local terrorist organization who saw her efforts to provide safe water as a threat to its power. Upon release, she was warned to leave the country, which ultimately brought her to the United States.

Today, Fasnacht is a Principal Product Manager at American Water. She continues to help her native country through her work as a board member for Global Water Alliance, an organization that funds safe drinking water projects. She was recently awarded Water for People’s Kenneth J. Miller Founders’ Award for her outstanding volunteer service. Every year, the mother of four, Fasnacht takes her children to help with water projects around the world.
