More Recognition for Rocky Mount Public Utilities

Rocky Mount Public Utilities Awards

Rocky Mount Public Utilities has earned the prestigious Silver designation award in the American Public Gas Association’s SOAR program.

SOAR Program

This is the first year for the System Operation Achievement Recognition (SOAR) program, and so far twenty-one public natural gas systems have won the award. In order to earn the recognition, natural gas utilities must demonstrate excellence in four areas:

  • Safety
  • Workforce Development
  • System Integrity
  • System Improvement

Overall ratings are awarded based on total cumulative points achieved in each area. RMPU earned 90-96% of the possible points. This is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates Rocky Mount's commitment to safety and service. 

“Rocky Mount is one of nine natural gas providers in the country to win the Silver designation in the SOAR program,” said Utilities Director Rich Worsinger. “Our natural gas division employees have worked hard to maintain the integrity of our system and to stay safe while on the job. We are very proud of this achievement.”
