USPOULTRY Accepting Applications for 2016 Clean Water Awards
USPOULTRY is accepting applications for the 2016 Clean Water Awards. The awards recognize outstanding performance of wastewater treatment plants that operate at poultry or egg processing facilities. Winners will be announced at USPOULTRY's 2016 Environmental Management Seminar to be held Sept. 22 - 23, at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Destin, Fla.
Awards are presented in two categories - full treatment and pretreatment. Full treatment facilities are those facilities that fully treat their wastewater prior to discharge into a receiving stream or a land application system. Pretreatment facilities are those facilities that discharge pretreated effluent to publicly-owned wastewater treatment facilities for further treatment. Any USPOULTRY member company is eligible to submit three nominees in each category. Facilities which have previously won the award may not be re-nominated for five years. The deadline for submitting applications is June 30. For an application, click here.
