Outstanding Performance Award for Kingston and Manchester Treatment Plants
Officials from the Department of Ecology presented Sewer Utility staff
with the Outstanding Treatment Plant award for the
Kingston and Manchester treatment plants on
Monday, November 9, 2015, at the Kitsap County Commissioners meeting.
More than one-third of Washington’s wastewater treatment plants – 127 –
have received an Outstanding Performance Award from the state Department of
Ecology for perfect performance in 2014. When the awards program began in
1995, only 14 treatment plants had perfect compliance. One of these was the
Manchester Treatment Plant, which has consistently received the award for
20 years in a row.
A special award was given to the Manchester Treatment Plant to recognize
the milestone of 20 years of outstanding performance. Congratulations to all
of our treatment plant operators for a job well done.
