Greer Commission of Public Works (CPW) is pleased to announce its recent Gold Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA). To receive this award, Greer’s Maple Creek Wastewater plant met all National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit limits during the 2016 calendar year, meaning we did not have any permit violations.
Greer’s Maple Creek Wastewater plant serves more than 12,500 customers and has a current capacity of 5 million gallons a day with plans to expand to 10 million gallons a day.
“We take pride in receiving the Gold Peak Performance Award for the third year in a row. Our environmental operators are very conscientious in their work, and are truly dedicated to producing a high-quality effluent, reducing our impact on the South Tyger River.” said Ronnie Turner, Greer CPW Water-Wastewater Operations Manager.
NACWA recognized 471 Peak Performance Award facilities during the Association’s 2017 Annual Award Ceremony at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch earlier this summer, including Greer CPW.
“NACWA’s Peak Performance Awards are a reflection on the incredible work that goes on 24/7 at our nation’s clean water agencies. The fact that Greer CPW has received the Gold award for three consecutive years demonstrates an exceptional commitment to the environment and the Greer community,” said Adam Krantz, NACWA Chief Executive Officer.[PHOTO] – CPW wastewater plant employees pose with the award following the September 25th, 2017 Commissioner's board meeting.
