The Pretreatment and Stormwater Awards recognize companies that are 100 percent compliant with their Industrial Waste and Pretreatment Permit. This involves operating wastewater equipment in such a way that their wastewater does not cause difficulties for the normal operation of the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The awards also recognize companies that demonstrate environmental stewardship by instituting additional programs in areas such as recycling, spill prevention, or natural resource protection.
