The Facility Award of Excellence recognizes those facilities that are striving to meet or exceed expectations in environmental protection. All facilities that have a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) or a No Discharge (ND) permit were eligible to submit an application for the recognition.

Seven ReWa WRRFs were presented the award at the South Carolina Environmental Conference in March. The facilities that have received the awards are Durbin Creek, Gilder Creek, Lower Reedy, Mauldin Road, Marietta, Piedmont Regional and Pelham.
