The City of Garland Water Utilities was selected by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) to receive the 2014 Gold Peak Performance Awards for both of its wastewater treatment facilities.
The Rowlett and Duck Creek Wastewater Treatment facilities received the award, which honors treatment operations that have achieved 100 percent compliance with their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for an entire calendar year.
“These awards demonstrate the commitment and dedication our employees have for being responsible stewards of the environment,” said Wes Kucera, Wastewater director. “This is accomplished by a cohesive team effort from the operations and maintenance group to the laboratory and pretreatment staff.”
“Garland Water Utilities is an outstanding example of environmental efforts. NACWA is honored to showcase the achievements of the Garland Water Utilities and our nation’s public wastewater utilities through the Peak Performance Awards Program.” Ken Kirk, NACWA’s chief executive officer.
Garland Water Utilities was recognized during NACWA’s 2015 Utility Leadership Conference and 45th Anniversary Annual Meeting this summer in Providence, Rhode Island.
