CITY OF CARROLLTON
WATER AND WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITIES
EARN AWARDS FOR OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
CARROLLTON, GA – The City of Carrollton Water Treatment Facility has earned the Georgia Association of Water Professional’s “Gold Award”. The Gold award recognizes water facilities that demonstrate perfection in compliance.
The City of Carrollton Wastewater Treatment Facility has earned the Georgia Association of Water Professional’s “Platinum Award” for complete and consistent LAS permit compliance for the past nine consecutive years. The Platinum Award recognizes facilities that demonstrate a perfect compliance record for five or more consecutive years.
Thousands of individual analysis are performed annually by each facility in order to maintain compliance with permit limitations and to ensure effective and efficient system operations. Failure to meet those limitations in even one instance would disqualify a facility from obtaining either award.
The current awards complement a list of achievements and awards for the past several years. The City of Carrollton Water Treatment facility has previously earned the following awards:
Gold award for calendar years 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2014, and 2015
