The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) presented Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) with one of this year’s NACWA Peak Performance Awards. This annual award is presented to honorees who have achieved excellence in operational performance and permit compliance.
BJWSA was honored for the Laurel Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant’s first Platinum Peak Performance Award. Also, the following facilities earned Platinum status for more than five consecutive years: Palm Key Wastewater Treatment Plant – Platinum 5, Port Royal Water Reclamation Facility – Platinum 5, Point South Wastewater Treatment Plant – Platinum 6 and Hardeeville Wastewater Treatment Plant – Platinum 8. The Platinum Awards recognize 100% compliance with permits over a consecutive five-year period.
