Mundubbera quiet achiever rewarded
A RARE award was bestowed on Mundubbera’s Trevor Harvey at the recent Institute of PublicWorks Engineers Australia State Conference.
The North Burnett Regional Council Technical Services manager was both thrilled and humbled by the award that was the culmination of two months of recognition, with Mr Harvey also being granted a Fellow membership of the Institute.
In the 40-year history of the IPWEA only four of the awards have been forthcoming. “I received the award for my extensive service to Queensland PublicWorks Engineering, with particular emphasis on services to theWater and Sewerage sector and my 10-year membership and current chairmanship of QueenslandWater,” Mr Harvey said.
“This is probably the nicest thing that has ever happen to me in my working life.”
Mr Harvey has represented several of the small and medium water suppliers throughout Queensland .
Mr Harvey gives his service to people who need it, especially water providers in the bush, where they don’t have a voice.
“Trevor isn’t one to look for recognition and is more interested in working quietly with his colleagues,” Corporate and Community Services general manager DavidWiskar said. About 350 of Mr Harvey’s peers attended the function and Mr Harvey said he was overwhelmed by the award.
GREAT HONOUR: Mundubbera’s Trevor Harvey is stunned after being awarded at a recent Institute of Public Works Engineers Australia State Conference.
