TAMPA, Fla., CNW/ - Primo Water Corporation (NYSE: PRMW) (TSX: PRMW) (the "Company" or "Primo"), a leading provider of water direct to consumers and water filtration services in North America and Europe as well as a leading provider of water dispensers, purified and spring bottled water, and self-service refill drinking water in the U.S. and Canada, today announced that Primo Water North America, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Primo,  is the first company to have a spring water source certified under the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) program.

Certification of the Diamond Spring site demonstrates that it has successfully completed each of the steps in the AWS Standard and is confirmation of having met the global benchmark for responsible water stewardship. AWS certification demonstrates that Primo has addressed five aspects of responsible water stewardship: good water governance, sustainable water balance, good water quality, important water-related areas, and safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

"We joined the Alliance for Water Stewardship in 2019 as part of our commitment to ensuring our water usage and conservation efforts meet internationally recognized standards," said Tom Harrington, Primo's Chief Executive Officer. "Today's announcement is an important step in that process, and we are thankful for AWS's  guidance. We are in the process of certifying our Wekiva Spring site in Florida, and we intend to begin the certification process for our Georgia and Arkansas spring water sources next year. Our goal is to have all of our key owned spring water sources certified by the AWS by the end of 2022 as we continue to work toward more sustainable resource management."

The AWS Standard certificates are issued independently of the site, its owners and AWS by neutral, expert, third-party conformity assessment bodies who have achieved AWS accreditation. A site's certificate will be valid for three years, subject to successful surveillance audits.
