NACWA’s (National Association of Clean Water Agencies) annual Peak Performance Awards recognize wastewater treatment programs who have outstanding compliance rates. Recently, at NACWA’s annual conference, it was announced that all six of Johnson County’s wastewater treatment facilities were among those recognized for outstanding performance in 2018.
In 2018, Johnson County Wastewater had a 99.98 percent compliance rate regarding National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) limits. Of a possible 3,567 violations, the department recorded only six violations for the entire year.
“We are extremely proud of the outstanding work by the men and women of wastewater and this outstanding performance record,” said County Manager Penny Postoak Ferguson.
