OCSD Awarded for Outstanding Compliance Record
The Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) has recently been selected to receive the Platinum Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Waters Agencies (NACWA). The Platinum Peak Performance Award honors facilities with a consistent record of full compliance for a consecutive five-year period.
“As the third largest wastewater treatment facility west of the Mississippi River, perfect compliance over a five-year period can be difficult. We received this award for our Reclamation Plant in Fountain Valley and Treatment Plant in Huntington Beach. Maintaining a perfect record of compliance for five years demonstrates the dedication of each of our employees to protecting public health and the environment,” stated Jim Herberg, OCSD General Manager.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by NACWA for 100 percent compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. We take the safety and security of our facilities, staff and the community very seriously,” stated Herberg.
NACWA recognized over 450 Peak Performance Award facilities during the Association’s 2018 Utility Leadership Conference and 48th Anniversary Annual Meeting, held July 23-26, 2018 in Boston, Mass.
“OCSD is an outstanding example of environmental efforts. NACWA is honored to showcase the achievements of OCSD and our nation’s public wastewater utilities through the Peak Performance Awards Program,” stated Adam Krantz, NACWA’s Chief Executive Officer.
