U.S. Poultry & Egg Association has announced that they will continue accepting applications for the 2012 Clean Water Awards until December 15, 2011.
There are two categories for the award. One category is for full treatment facilities, which are those facilities that fully reclaim their wastewater prior to discharge into receiving water or a final land application system. The other category is for pretreatment facilities, which are those facilities that discharge pretreated effluent to publicly-owned full treatment facilities.
The 2012 winners will be announced at USPOULTRY’s Environmental Management Seminar, to be held March 7-8 in Nashville.
We at Hydro Solutions join in congratulating the 2011 Clean Water Award winners: Perdue Farms in Perry, GA, for full treatment; Keystone Foods LLC in Gadsden, AL, for pretreatment; and American Proteins in Cuthbert, GA, which received honorable mention in the full treatment category.
