The Peak Performance Award program has honored thousands of NACWA Member Agency facilities since its inception in 1987. We fully anticipate that this year, with the program's enhancements, recognition will eclipse last year's record number of honorees.
Three Categories to Recognize Facility Achievement
NACWA's Peak Performance Awards Program consists of three categories – Platinum, Gold and Silver. The criteria for each category are as follows:
All treatment facility applicants must be publicly owned by a current NACWA Member Agency and be in operation for at least one month or more during 2015. Treatment facilities must provide, at minimum, secondary treatment, or advanced primary treatment with a 301(h) waiver. Additionally, there are no facility capacity minimums for Peak Performance Award eligibility.
How to Apply for 2015 Peak Performance Recognition
The Peak Performance Award Application Packet provides you with complete details and information to apply for recognition. Applications for the 2015 Peak Performance Awards Program are due by April 8, 2016. Applying for Peak Performance recognition is easy – facilities may complete and submit their applications in the following ways:
Applicants must provide a copy of the applicable Federal or state equivalent NPDES permit, an underground injection control permit, or a state control mechanism that regulates effluent quality and reuse of reclaimed flows or a copy of these requirements must already be on file with NACWA. Please review the "What to Submit" section on page 2 of the application packet carefully to determine what your facility must submit to be eligible for a Peak Performance Award.
Peak Performance Award Recognition
NACWA's 2015 Platinum Peak Performance honorees will be recognized at an Awards Ceremony & Reception during NACWA's 2016 Utility Leadership Conference & 46th Annual Meeting in Denver, CO in July. First-time Platinum Award recipients (Platinum5) will be invited to accept their award in person, while Multi-Platinum honorees will be recognized as a group in a multimedia presentation.
