Glenbard Wastewater Authority awarded NACWA Platinum Peak Performance Award

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) is the nation’s recognized leader in legislative, regulatory and legal clean water advocacy – helping ensure a strong, sustainable clean water future. Every year NACWA peak performance awards recognize facilities for excellence in complying with their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. The NPDES permit states water quality criteria that the Authority must meet in the water we discharge after treatment. For the past five years, the Authority has achieved a “Gold Award,” which is given to facilities with no NPDES permit violations for the entire calendar year. After five consecutive Gold Awards, facilities are eligible to receive a “Platinum Award,” which is a prestigious honor.
