National Recognition for Public Works Wastewater Division
High praise for the Public Works Wastewater Division. The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) recently awarded the division a Platinum Peak Performance Award. The award is given to facilities which had 100 percent permit compliance over a consecutive five-year period.
This is the fifth consecutive year the Wastewater Division has received this award for the quality of the water it discharges to the Willamette River, meaning it has been 100 percent compliant for nine years running. The effluent limits are set by Oregon DEQ which issues and oversees permits. The award was announced at the NACWA Awards Ceremony in July.
