Greeley’s Wastewater Plant Wins National Recognition Again
The Greeley Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF) has received a National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) Peak Performance Platinum 8 Award.
The award recognizes the environmental compliance record that the plant has achieved every year for the last eight years.
According to a city of Greeley press release, "NACWA Platinum Awards recognize 100 percent compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting over a consecutive five-year period. If 100 percent compliance is maintained beyond the initial award, Platinum Award status is continued. This year, Greeley was awarded Platinum 8 status."
The Greeley WPCF releases approximately 7 million gallons of treated water back into the Cache La Poudre River every day.
