Charlotte Water regulates the discharge of pollutants that enter into our municipal sewer system. We monitor 58 industrial partners who are required to obtain wastewater permits which contain limits based on the pollutants discharged from the facility.
On Tuesday June 18th, 2018 Charlotte Water honored the facilities that complied with their permits and those who have taken proactive and innovative approaches to protect the quality of our water in 2017. Charlotte Water is committed to protecting the environment, and so are the industries in our community.
There are 3 tiers of which a facility can be honored for environmental excellence. Silver is given to companies that are 100% compliant for reporting and monitoring; at least 90% compliant for permit limits for one calendar year. No slug loading during the 2015 calendar year. No Significant non-compliance (SNC) for 2 calendar years and the industry must have discharged to the sewer system at some time during the year.
The second tier is Gold. Gold is given to those who are 100% compliant for reporting, monitoring, and permit limits for 1 calendar year. No slug loading during the 2015 calendar year. No SNC for 2 calendar years and industry must have discharged to the sewer system at some time during the year.
The final tier is Platinum. To receive platinum you must have 5 consecutive years of 100% compliance for reporting, monitoring, and permit limits. No slug loading and no SNC. The industry must also have discharged to the sewer system at some point during the year.
We are extremely proud of all the recipients, but we would like to hi-light the platinum winners.
