EPA awards program recognizes wastewater treatment facilities and their contributions to the nation's water quality and public health and safety

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is congratulating 24 municipalities and industries for making outstanding and creative technological achievements in wastewater treatment and pollution abatement programs this past year.

These organizations are the recipients of the 2008 National Clean Water Act Recognition Awards. They were recognized for demonstrating outstanding water quality achievements for projects and programs in five award categories: operations and maintenance, exemplary biosolids management, implementation and enforcement of local pretreatment programs, cost-effective storm water controls, and combined sewer overflow controls.

The awards program, sponsored by the EPA, is in its 23rd year. It recognizes wastewater treatment facilities and their contributions to protecting the public’s health and safety and the nation’s water quality.
