USD Wins Peak Performance Platinum Award
USD has received the Platinum Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) for the 2017 calendar year. The Platinum Award recognizes agencies that have achieved five consecutive years of 100% compliance with their regulatory permit requirements. These permit conditions are in place to protect the water quality of San Francisco Bay. Additional consecutive years are added to an agency’s Platinum Award as they are accomplished. This latest award marks the District’s ninth consecutive Platinum-winning year.
The District has been recognized by NACWA for 25 consecutive years since the award program began in 1993. “USD’s Platinum Award is an honor that reflects our level of commitment to environmental protection, as well as the hard work of District employees,” says Armando Lopez, Plant Manager. “USD’s highly-trained, dedicated staff is the reason for our success.”
General Manager Paul Eldredge notes that “Our entire staff shares in this award. I am proud of USD’s long history of recognition from NACWA for excellence and credit the efforts of our employees in maintaining our superior record.”
