All four of Hanover County’s wastewater treatment plants have been recognized by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) for exceptional performance. The facilities have been honored with the NACWA’s Peak Performance Awards. The Peak Performance Awards reflect permit compliance for the 2021 calendar year.
The Hanover County Department of Public Utilities Totopotomoy Wastewater Treatment Plant earned a Platinum 17 award. Hanover Courthouse Sewage Treatment Plant achieved a Gold Award; and the Ashland Wastewater Treatment Plant and Doswell Wastewater Treatment plant each earned a Silver Award.
Hanover County’s Director of Public Utilities Steven P. Herzog said, “We are fortunate to have employees with the knowledge, skill, and dedication to operate and maintain our wastewater treatment plants in a world class manner. I would especially like to thank these plants’ Superintendents; Jacquie Lawrence, Kim Spruth and Harry Kowalski.
Adam Krantz, Chief Executive Officer of NACWA, applauded this year’s recipients. He said, “Despite the many challenges and setbacks that we faced as a nation and a global community over the last three years, these NACWA member public utilities have been able to deliver consistent and reliable clean water services.”
