AVON, IN, April 19, 2010 -- West Central Conservancy District (WCCD) in Avon is being recognized for the second consecutive year for its outstanding plant performance in the collection, treatment and disposal of sewage and other liquid wastes. The award is presented by Aqua-Aerobic Systems Inc., a leader in the design and manufacture of wastewater treatment equipment and systems for both municipal and industrial worldwide markets.

WCCD is being recognized for its daily efforts to run plant systems at the most efficient and effective levels possible. The plant utilizes a 4-basin AquaSBR® Sequencing Batch Reactor System for primary treatment of the conservancy district's wastewater. Newly installed in 2006, the system is operated, regulated and monitored by WCCD's licensed and experienced plant professionals.

The WCCD plant collects, purifies and restores on average about 3.2 million gallons per day, and can reach up to maximum flow of 6.6 million gallons per day.

"It takes highly trained professionals to oversee the treatment of this volume of wastewater while continuing to run the most efficient system possible," said Ron Goff, WCCD District Manager. "Our operations staff deserves credit for this achievement because it's through their hard work every day that we reach this high level of performance. It is our ongoing goal to utilize the most cost effective, environmentally safe and healthful methods available in treating wastewater."
