The Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WRA) received a Silver Peak Performance Award.
This annual award is presented to honorees who have achieved excellence in operational performance and permit compliance.
Adam Krantz, Chief Executive Officer of NACWA, congratulates this year’s honorees, noting, “Our public utility members are the backbone of the communities they serve, providing safe, reliable access to clean water services day-in and day-out. The Peak Performance Award presentation is our chance to shine a national spotlight on those outstanding clean water utilities that have demonstrated operational excellence with no more than five permit violations in a calendar year, and, for our Gold and Platinum Award winners, zero violations.
These utilities represent the top performers in the whole country and go above and beyond in their mission to protect public health and the environment. On behalf of NACWA’s Board of Directors, I extend my congratulations and gratitude to all this year’s award winners and I thank them for their service and their incredible compliance with increasingly rigid Clean Water Act standards. This year has seen unprecedented challenges in the wake of the pandemic, and the Peak Performance Award winners have more than risen to the occasion.”
Since 2009, WRA has received a Silver award or higher each year.
