2017 Peak Performance Award Application

Application Deadline: March 30,2018

Applications are now available for NACWA’s Peak Performance Awards Program.  The program has honored tens of thousands of NACWA Member Agency facilities since its inception in 1987.  Recognition is for compliance in the 2017 calendar year. 

NACWA’s Peak Performance Awards recognize Member Agency facilities for excellence in wastewater treatment as measured by their compliance with their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, as well as those facilities that operate under a 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.

How to Apply for 2017 Peak Performance Recognition

The Peak Performance Award Application Packet provides you with complete details and information to apply for recognition.  The deadline for applications will be COB Friday, 30 March. 

Peak Performance Award Recognition

NACWA’s 2017 Platinum Peak Performance honorees will be recognized at an Awards Ceremony & Reception during NACWA’s 2018 Utility Leadership Conference in Boston, MA in July.  First-time Platinum Award recipients (Platinum5) will be invited to accept their award in person, while multi-Platinum honorees (e.g. Platinum6, Platinum7, etc.) will be recognized as a group in a multi-media presentation.  Certificates for all Platinum, Gold and Silver honorees will be distributed via mail to each NACWA Member Agency’s primary contact.  Additionally, the opportunity to purchase Peak Performance wear, to recognize treatment facility leadership and staff will be provided for all honorees.
