Industrial Pretreatment: Compliance Awards

Annual Recognition

Industries regulated under Johnson County Wastewater's Industrial Pretreatment Program are recognized annually by the Kansas Water Environment Association (KWEA) and Johnson County Wastewater for their compliance achievements during the previous year.  Johnson County Wastewater extends its congratulations and appreciation to the following award winners for a job well done!

KWEA Awards

The KWEA’s awards program is entitled the "Gold and Silver Awards."  To qualify for a Gold Award, the recipient must have achieved 95% or better compliance with all discharge and reporting requirements during the review year; maintained a good record of cooperation with the Pretreatment Coordinator; and the industry must operate a wastewater treatment system or have made significant efforts to minimize pollutant concentrations in their wastewater discharge so as to reduce the need to require pretreatment systems.  The recipient of a Silver Award achieved the same as noted for the Gold Award, except that infrequent discharge violations may have occurred during the year.  These violations must not have caused any harm to the treatment plant or the treatment plant workers; caused no pass-through to the receiving water, and did not negatively impact biosolids disposal.  The Gold and Silver Awards are presented during the KWEA’s annual conference in the fall of each year.
