USPOULTRY Accepting Applications for 2014 Clean Water Awards
U.S. Poultry & Egg Association is accepting applications for the 2014 Clean Water Awards. The awards recognize outstanding performance of wastewater treatment plants that operate at poultry processing facilities. Winners will be announced at USPOULTRY's 2014 Environmental Management Seminar to be held at the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Destin, Fla., from September 25-26, 2014.
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 water or a land application system. Pretreatment facilities are those facilities that discharge pretreated effluent to publicly-owned treatment facilities for further processing. 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 May 31, 2014. Award program application forms are available by clicking on the following link - Application
