AWWA’s Water Equation receives major gift from Denver Water

Colorado students pursuing careers in the water industry will have new opportunities to assist with educational costs through a scholarship fund created by Denver Water through AWWA’s Water Equation. As Denver Water celebrates its 100th Anniversary, thoughts turned to helping the community that has given it so much in the last century. As it partnered with Declaration Brewery to create a special beer, the decision was made to donate all proceeds to educational scholarships and endowments that support careers in the water industry. AWWA’s Water Equation will receive up to $10,000 in gifts from Denver Water and from its partnership in creating this beer with Declaration Brewery.

Centurion Beer, a pilsner which is light in color to highlight the purity of the water, commemorates the 100th Anniversary of Denver Water and is brewed using a unique water reuse process. The water came from the PureWater Colorado Demonstration Project, an advanced water purification system that has been on display at the Recycling Plant to provide a way to reuse water for drinking. The beer is now available on tap at Declaration Brewing’s Preamble Tap Room, and will be available soon in local liquor stores and restaurants.
