The Washington State Department of Ecology presented Washington Water with the Outstanding Performance Award for 2020. The award was given for the Rosario Wastewater Treatment Plant’s strong health and safety record.
Every year, the Department of Ecology recognizes utilities that have achieved full compliance with their water quality permits, specifically meeting state pollution limits, monitoring and reporting requirements, spill prevention planning, pretreatment, and operation demands. Washington Water collects and treats more than 60,000 gallons of wastewater per day for the Rosario resort area and surrounding residential communities.
“Protecting our customers’ and employees’ health and safety—and operating in a way that respects the environment—are our priorities, and we work diligently to ensure our water supply stays clean,” said General Manager Matt Brown. “It is an honor to be recognized again for our efforts to provide quality, service, and value to our customers and communities.”
