Awards

Michael T. Coyne Meritorious Service Award

Michael T. Coyne Meritorious Service Award is presented to an Active Member in the water works field. They are recognized for their long-standing service to the water works profession. Michael Coyne worked for the Weymouth Water Department and was a longtime member of Plymouth County Water Works Association serving on the BOD and as Co-Chair of the clambake. The success of today’s clambake can be attributed to Mike. He was instrumental in bringing the Distributors, Engineers, and Consultants into a more active role in the clambake. He was the one that started allowing the vendors to set up booths during the clambake and it was he who started the donations for booth space, which in turn benefited the PCWWA scholarship. Even after he retired from Weymouth he continued an active role in the Association with various duties and responsibilities. He was an individual that you could count on and is a testament to the high quality of Water Dept. personnel that serve this association.
