City Wins Awards that Recognize Wastewater Plants & Employees
CLEARWATER – Each of the city’s three Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facilities received a George W. Burke, Jr. Safety Award from the Water Environment Federation. The awards program recognizes public wastewater treatment facilities that have outstanding safety leaders in the industry. City staff from the Water Pollution Control Division will accept the award in April on behalf of the City of Clearwater.
Another award went to City of Clearwater Industrial Pretreatment Technician, Jan Willis. She received the award for Industrial Pretreatment Operator of the Year in Florida’s Region IV, from the Florida Water and Pollution Control Operators Association. This award recognizes stellar performance by an individual in the field of industrial pretreatment.
The Water Pollution Control Division operates the city’s three wastewater treatment plants. The plants take raw sewage and treat it to high standards for reuse as reclaimed water, which is used for irrigation and reduces the need to irrigate with potable, drinking water.
