Wastewater treatment plants receive the National Association of Clean Water Agencies’ (NACWA) Peak Performance Awards
DALLAS – The Dallas Water Utilities’ Southside and Central Wastewater Treatment Plants earned the National Association of Clean Water Agencies’ (NACWA) Peak Performance Awards.
Both plants received the Peak Performance Silver Award that recognizes treatment facilities with no more than five violations during a single calendar year. The annual award program offers national recognition. Both facilities were among member agencies recognized throughout the U.S. for excellence in wastewater treatment as measured by compliance with their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.
The plants have been recognized for treatment excellence over the last few years. Dedication, treatment expertise and astute preventive maintenance by plant staff were instrumental in receiving this award.
“Plant staff members display professional pride and demonstrate a strong ability to identify, analyze and solve problems,” said Zachary Peoples, Dallas Water Utilities Assistant Director of Wastewater Operations.
Both plant managers orchestrate successful programs that treat approximately 72 billion gallons of sewage combined for a population of 1.3 million in Dallas and eleven customer cities.
