The Department of Ecology Northwest Regional Office has once again recognized the city of Bainbridge Island for its exceptional performance of wastewater treatment at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

The Wastewater Treatment Plant Award was bestowed upon the city for its work maintaining compliance with effluent limits and monitoring and reporting requirements and overall operational demands of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit in 2015.

“The work completed by our team at the wastewater treatment plant is vital to protecting our water quality on Bainbridge Island and the water quality of the Puget Sound,” said City Manager Doug Schulze. “I want to acknowledge the hard work these individuals perform 365 days a year to protect our environment and keep our plant operating at these high standards.”
