Upper Trinity Regional Water District has been recognized with top national honors for each of its four water reclamation (wastewater treatment) facilities serving several communities in Denton County.  

The Peak Performance Awards program is sponsored by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA). Peak Performance Awards are presented annually to recognize public wastewater treatment facilities for outstanding performance in compliance with state and federal regulations.  

Upper Trinity has four water reclamation plants serving 15 communities in Denton County; three will receive Platinum Awards for the year 2018, and the fourth will receive a Gold Award for 2018. The NACWA Platinum Award is presented to member agencies that have achieved 100 percent compliance with Texas and EPA standards for treated effluent from water reclamation plants – if the 100 percent compliance has been consistent for at least five consecutive years.
