Garland Water Utilities Earns Performance Awards

Water Awards 2020 360x250

Garland Water Utilities continues a winning streak by bringing home two national Environmental Achievement Awards from the winter conference of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The City received the NACWA award for the “operations and environmental performance” category, winning on the merits of the bio-solids rehabilitation and odor control project at the Rowlett Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. In addition, their quarterly industrial pretreatment newsletter was the overall winner for a printed publication in the public information and education category.

The Duck Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will receive another “Plant of the Year” award from the Water Environment Association of Texas (WEAT) in April at the Texas Water conference. The award is presented to a Texas municipal wastewater treatment plant that has consistently exhibited outstanding performance of daily activities beyond the normal call of duty.

These awards recognize public clean water utilities that have made outstanding contributions to environmental protection, their communities, ratepayers and the water sector.

“The individuals and member clean water utilities honored here tonight collectively represent the best and brightest innovators and leaders in the municipal water sector,” NACWA CEO Adam Krantz said.
