Lower Bird Creek Wastewater Plant Receives Peak Performance Award

Oct. 26, 2015

The City of Tulsa (Okla.) Lower Bird Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant has received a Platinum Peak Performance Award in 2015 from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies. This award recognizes 100-percent compliance with permits over a consecutive five-year period, ending with the 2014 calendar year.

The Platinum Peak Performance Award is the highest performance recognition that the National Association of Clean Water Agencies gave to public wastewater treatment facilities at its 2015 Utility Leadership Conference this past summer. Others are the Gold Award—no permit violations for one calendar year; and the Silver Award—no more than five violations per calendar year.

The Lower Bird Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is located in northeast Tulsa on the south side of Bird Creek at the Port of Catoosa. The plant was constructed in 1996 along with the Port Lift Station. The plant has been under construction for the past two years and is expanding treatment from 2 million gal per day to 4 million gal per day.

Wastewater collected through Tulsa’s 1,960 miles of sanitary sewer is treated to make it safe and clean enough to return to a water source or to apply as a biosolid on agricultural land as a soil supplement.

The Tulsa Water and Sewer Department was created in 2011 out of the streamlining of the Public Works Department to concentrate on the management and operation of the city of Tulsa’s water and wastewater systems. The department manages the city’s raw water supply, reservoirs, treatment, distribution systems, plants and storage facilities.
