Awards & Recognition

Industrial Partners Pretreatment Recognition Program

The Clean Water Services Industrial Partners Pretreatment Recognition Program highlights the efforts made by industrial customers that act as responsible stewards of the Tualatin River Watershed. Awardees are showcased for their contributions at a ceremony each spring.

Industries receiving an award must achieve zero pretreatment violations during the previous calendar year and meet the following requirements:

Prequalification Requirements

  • No remediation sites
  • No categorical non-dischargers (NDCIU), best management practices, or wash water
  • No active state or federal environmental actions pending (or in progress)
  • No permit flow exceedences
  • No self-monitoring or Clean Water Services Water Quality Laboratory monitoring permit parameter violations

Notification

Qualification and consideration for the awards is determined by the permit manager. Awardees are notified in February each year.

Award Categories

Award categories are based on point accumulation from a combination of factors related to sanitary permit level, discharge quantity, stormwater status, and analysis of regulated pollutants.

  • Tier I - lowest risk, low flow, single pollutant. Have earned 1-2 points.
  • Tier II - medium risk, higher flow, several pollutants. Have earned 3-4 points.
  • Tier III - highest risk, large flow, multiple pollutants. Have earned 5-6 points.

Environmental Excellence and Innovation Award

If an industry believes it has gone above and beyond its peers in achieving environmental compliance through sustainable actions and/or innovation, it may apply for the Industrial Partners Environmental Excellence and Innovation Award. The winner of this award is selected by the Clean Water Services Regulatory Affairs Department management.
