One of Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) facilities has won a compliance award.
PWCSA handles wastewater collection, cleaning, and water service for much of Prince William County.
According to a release, PWCSA’s “H.L. Mooney Advanced Water Reclamation Facility has won a Platinum Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) for the fourth consecutive year.”
The wastewater treatment facility, based in Woodbridge, has met 100% regulatory compliance for the past eight years, and will be recognized for their achievement at NACWA’s conference in St. Louis.
“The staff at the H.L. Mooney Advanced Water Reclamation Facility continues to do an outstanding job protecting the environment. To achieve an eighth consecutive year without any permit violations is a remarkable accomplishment and one worth commending,” stated General Manager Dean Dickey in a release.
With PWCSA’s treatment process for wastewater, the facility has been able to reduce the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous that is being released into Neabsco Creek, which leads in to the Potomac River, which in turn can impact the Chesapeake Bay.
“Our folks work around the clock to ensure that everything we do at the plant complies with all state and federal regulations. The Service Authority is proud to play an important role in preserving our waterways, and we are thrilled to have won this award,” stated Service Authority Process Engineer Maureen O’Shaughnessy in a release.
