MORGANTOWN -

The Morgantown Utility Board received two outstanding performance awards by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies.

The Star City and Cheat Lake Wastewater Treatment Plants were recognized with Platinum Peak Performance Awards.

The awards were given to the plant by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies for its compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit requirements for five or more consecutive years.

The Star City Wastewater Treatment Plant has gone 12 years without having an incident, which means they received the award for 12 consecutive years.

The Cheat Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant has gone 14 years without an incident and received the award for 14 consecutive years.

The MUB said that the awards not only speak volumes about the hard work the staff does, but also shows their commitment to the customers and the atmosphere.

"Regulations become more stringent every year and there are different regulations to satisfy. And we're very proud that we've been able, for over a decade at each facility, to have that consistent high performance," said Tim Ball, the Morgantown Utility Board general manager. "And to meet a standard of excellence in protecting the community and the environment."

The awards are for excellence in service.

The Morgantown Utility Board claims to have some of the lowest rates in the state.
