The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works Bureau of Utility Operations received the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) Peak Performance Awards for continued wastewater treatment excellence at each of the County’s seven Water Reclamation Facilities (WRF).

The Broadwater and Maryland City WRF’s earned NACWA Peak Performance Platinum Award honoring treatment plants that have at least five consecutive calendar years without a single National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit violation.  The Peak Performance Platinum Award for the Broadwater WRF reflects 28 consecutive years of 100% NPDES perfect permit compliance, while the Maryland City WRF has had perfect compliance for the past 12 years.  Broadneck, Patuxent, and the Annapolis WRF’s all received Gold Awards having achieved perfect permit compliance last year.  The Cox Creek and Piney Orchard WRFs earned Silver Awards for less than five permit exceptions.
