Congratulations to the Past Years Award Winners
Unfortunately, the cancellation of the Annual Conference and Awards Banquet in April did not allow us to recognize our 2019 nominees nor announce the award recipients in person. The IAWPCO wants to congratulate every facility and wastewater professional who was nominated for our awards this past year. To even be nominated is a great achievement in of itself.

Awards Classification Regrouping
On May 4, 2018 the IAWPCO Executive Board approved a motion by Second Vice-President Edger Mendoza to amend the groupings for the Plant of the Year Awards. This amendment was unanimously approved by the IAWPCO Executive Board. Awards Committee Chair Phil Brandenburg, and Illinois EPA Representative Jim Miles were present at the meeting and supportive of the amendment. This amendment has been in long discussion with the Association. Deriving from the increasing difficulty, on the inspector’s part, in the fair judging of facilities that are larger with possibly more abundant resources than a smaller facility. The Group 3 Plants have also decreased in numbers across the State over the years making nominations in this category difficult. The new groupings will be as follows.
Group 1 - All Plants over 7.5 MDG DAF
Group 2 - All Plants from 1 MGD DAF to under 7.5 MGD DAF
Group 3 - All Plants other than Lagoons under 1 MGD DAF
Group 4 - All Lagoons
Industrial Achievement and Operator of the Year Awards remain unchanged.
