[ARCHIVED] City of Sequim Receives Wastewater Treatment Plant Outstanding Performance Award


The City of Sequim Water Reclamation Facility has received a “Wastewater Treatment Plant Outstanding Performance” award for 2013 by the Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE). This is the third year in a row that the Sequim Reclamation Facility has received the award for achieving full compliance with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Only 125 systems out of approximately 300 received the award.

The Department of Ecology evaluates wastewater treatment plants in Washington for their compliance with effluent limits, monitoring and reporting requirements, spill prevention planning, pretreatment, and overall operational demands of the NPDES permit.

“It takes diligent operators and a strong management team, working effectively together, to achieve this high level of compliance,” said Heather Bartlett, DOE Water Quality Program Manager. “It is not easy to operate a wastewater treatment plant 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without violation.”

Please contact City Engineer and Assistant Public Works Director David Garlington at (360) 681-3439 or dgarlington@sequimwa.gov with questions.
