The Anacortes Wastewater Treatment Plant is receiving the 2021 Wastewater Treatment Plant Outstanding Performance Award from the Department of Ecology.
Of approximately 300 statewide plants, Anacortes is one of 124 that achieved top performance of its wastewater treatment plant operations in 2021. Anacortes was recognized as being one of the top performers for regularly meeting numeric effluent limits and permit criteria, for conducting monitoring, and for reporting data as required.
Turning wastewater into water clean enough to discharge to waterways takes efficient process control, skill, teamwork, and good judgement. Please join the City of Anacortes and the Department of Ecology in thanking our staff for their successful plant operations and for protecting the health of Washington waters.
