DENVER, CO, Feb. 13, 2015 -- The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has selected the Key West Richard A. Heyman Wastewater Treatment Plant to receive its 2014 Plant Operations Excellence Award. The award is presented annually to facilities that demonstrate a commitment to excellence in management and operations and maintenance (O&M).

in 1988, CH2M HILL, a global full-service consulting, design, construction, program management, and operations firm, performed original design and construction management of the plant and has since provided O&M services at the 10 million-gallon-per-day extended aeration activated sludge plant.

In December 2013, CH2M HILL renewed the O&M agreement with the city for five years plus two 5-year options. In addition to the plant, the company maintains 57 miles of collection lines, 24 lift stations and the stormwater drainage system, including four pump-assisted injection wells and biological nutrient removal systems.

The award-winning facility also earned the Florida DEP Operations Excellence Award in 2012, 2009 and 2004, as well as numerous other industry awards for excellence in operational performance and safety.
