Fort Worth’s Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) was recognized last week for 27 years of 100 percent discharge permit compliance by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA).

“To have 100 percent compliance for this length of time is a testament to our current and former employees. Their dedication enables our community to thrive by doing water right every time,” said Fort Worth Interim Water Director Kara Shuror.

NACWA’s Peak Performance Awards recognizes NACWA member agency facilities for excellence in permit compliance. This recognition program consists of three categories – Platinum, Gold and Silver. Village Creek WRF was received the Platinum Award, which recognizes facilities that have achieved 100 percent permit compliance for a minimum of five consecutive years. Gold Awards are presented to facilities with no permit violations for the entire calendar year. Silver Awards are presented to facilities with no more than five violations per calendar year.

Only two other facilities in the country are recognized for equal or longer compliance records – 27 and 28 years. Both are significantly smaller than the Village Creek plant, which is permitted for 166 million gallons of average daily flow. NACWA recognized 471 Peak Performance Award facilities during the Association’s 2017 Utility Leadership Conference.

“The Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility is an outstanding example of environmental efforts. NACWA is honored to showcase the achievements of the Fort Worth Water Department and our nation’s public wastewater utilities through the Peak Performance Awards Program,” said Adam Krantz, NACWA’s Chief Executive Officer.
