CANTON, Ohio — 

The City of Canton's Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) was recently recognized and presented with two prestigious awards, one awarded by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) and the other by the Northeast Section of the Ohio Water Environment Association (NESOWEA.)

 

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) presented Canton's Water Reclamation Facility with the Peak Performance Aware, which recognizes public wastewater treatment facilities for their outstanding compliance records. As a further honor, the Platinum Award was presented to the City of Canton WRF at NACWA's 2011 Summer Conference in Chicago honoring 5 consecutive years of 100% compliance with its discharge permit limits. This Platinum Award is NACWA's highest honor bestowed upon treatment facilities making this year the twelfth consecutive year WRF has been honored NACWA through its Peak Performance Award.

 

WRF was also honored by the Northeast Section of the Ohio Water Environment Association (NESOWEA). WRF became the first repeat winner of NESOWEA's Outstanding Facility Award, having had previously earned the award in the year 2006.

 

The WRF staff is proud of its longstanding tradition in protecting our environment. Canton was the first in Ohio to construct a wastewater facility back in 1893, and the City is continuing their commitment by designing state-of-the-art facility improvements to assure that Canton maintains their excellence in the field of wastewater treatment.
