The City of Hackensack is recipient of a 2009 Wastewater Treatment Facility Award from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).
At the 73rd annual Wastewater Operations Conference held in Brooklyn Center 170 Minnesota facilities were honored for excellence in operations.
MPCA Assistant Commissioner Rebecca Flood had high praise for the award recipients.
To be eligible for the award, facility operators had to comply with discharge permit requirements throughout the year. These requirements included submitting all monitoring reports to the MPCA correctly and on time, demonstrating compliance through monitoring or in surveys and employing MPCA-certified operators.
There are about 1,700 wastewater treatment facilities in Minnesota, including municipal, industrial and some privately-operated institutional facilities.
The size of the community, institution or treatment plant is not a factor in awarding the certificates of excellence.
