Johnson County Wastewater (JCW) has been recognized for Peak Performance by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies. The Peak Performance Awards recognize NACWA member agency facilities for excellence in permit compliance.
“Not only do we serve, we excel,” said Susan Pekarek, general manager, JCW. “One of the ways we demonstrate our excellent performance is through awards we receive from NACWA. Thanks to my predecessor, John O’Neil, who started our award application process many years ago, as well as the amazing wastewater staff, we now pursue and receive awards for performance each year.”
In 2019, Johnson County was 99.4% compliant, with 12 violations out of 2,155 test points.
Receiving Platinum Awards were:
Blue River Main Platinum 14
New Century Air Center Platinum 8
Douglas L. Smith Middle Basin Platinum 6
The number represents the years of continuous 100% compliance.
Mill Creek Regional received a Silver award, with five or fewer violations throughout the year.
“It goes without saying, that without the quality service that our JCW staff provides our community would not enjoy the success that we have,” Chairman Ed Eilert said during the meeting. “Thank you to you for your leadership and to the JCW employees who work hard, every day.”
