Laurel, Md. – September 20, 2023 – A leading water industry organization today recognized all six of WSSC Water’s water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs – formerly known as wastewater treatment plants) for outstanding performance in complying with federal permit limits and Clean Water Act standards. The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) presented its Peak Performance Awards to the high-performing facilities at WSSC Water’s monthly Commission meeting. 

There are three categories of awards: 

  • Platinum for facilities that have consistently achieved perfect compliance for five or more years; 
  • Gold for facilities that achieve 100 percent compliance for an entire calendar year; and 
  • Silver for facilities that received no more than five permit violations in a calendar year. 

WSSC Water’s facilities earned Peak Performance Awards as follows: Peak Performance Award winners
