Wastewater Collection System of The Year Award Description

 

The mission of the North Carolina Collection System of The Year Award is to identify and recognize the municipality that protects the public health and the natural beauty of the environment through pro-active practices of management, operations and maintenance beyond what is required of its NCDEQ collection system permit. To assist in these efforts, the Wastewater Collection and Water Distribution Systems committee shall annually recognize up to three wastewater collection systems in North Carolina based on the size of their collection system.

 

Recipients of the awards will have demonstrated that they perform quality collection system maintenance procedures through the efficient use of labor, materials, equipment, and innovative methods to keep their collection system in good working condition to minimize health hazards and property damage that occur due to sanitary sewer over flows during both wet weather and dry weather conditions. The awards will honor the collection system personnel that serve their community with a high level of professionalism and diligent work in the operation and maintenance of their wastewater collection system facilities. The recipient’s staff make the most of their available resources, no matter how great or small. Collection systems will be categorized by the following sizes: large system = greater than 750 mi. of public collection system, medium system = 251-750 mi. of public collection system, and small system = 250 mi. of public collection system or less. The systems will be evaluated against all applicants in addition to the evaluation based on size. An overall winner, regardless of size, and the highest ranked systems in the two remaining size categories will be recognized.

 

The award committee will review the applications; rank each collection system against the other applicants based on a normalization of the data on a per mile of gravity sewer basis. Members of the award committee may conduct interviews in order to review the data submitted and collect additional information as needed to determine the final winners.
