Seymour Water Pollution Control Facility received a 2013 facility safety award during the 77th annual Indiana Water Environment Association conference conducted Nov. 20 to 22 in Indianapolis.
The Seymour utility also was runner-up in the competition for the Burke Award for safety, scoring 98.5 points out of a possible 100, according to a news release from utility director Randy M. Hamilton. That award was established in 1982 in honor of George W. Burke Jr., for his years of service to both the water environment field and Water Environment Federation as staff manager of technical services.
The utility also won the collection system award for small facilities, which is designed for facilities serving less than 40,000 people.
