Water Services Receives Peak Performance Awards

Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners today recognized Montgomery County Water Services receipt of two Peak Performance Awards presented by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA). NACWA recognizes public wastewater treatment facilities for their outstanding compliance records.  Montgomery County Water Services’ Eastern Regional Water Reclamation Facility earned the Gold Award for having 100 percent compliance with its NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) permit for the entire 2009 calendar year.   The Silver Award was presented to the Western Regional Water Reclamation Facility for having received no more than five NPDES permit violations in 2009.

“We are pleased to recognize Water Services’ successful initiatives that address the wide range of management challenges facing public wastewater utilities in today’s competitive environment,” commented Commissioner Dan Foley.   “It is an honor to be recognized nationally as an outstanding example of environmental efforts. “    

Montgomery County Water Services treats about 28 million gallons of wastewater per day between its two water reclamation facilities.  “Credit needs to be given to the service teams that operate the wastewater treatment plants, “said Greg Merrill, Environmental Services Director.  “Their diligence and hard work have earned these awards.”
