The City of Minden received two awards for their wastewater facility operations on November 8 at the Nebraska Water Environment Association (NWEA) Fall Conference in Kearney. Utilities Superintendent Ryan Hurst was presented the 2017 Scott Wilber Outstanding Facility Award and a silver rating Safety Award on behalf of the City.
Both awards are determined by committees. The Scott Wilber Award recognizes exemplary operations and maintenance of wastewater treatment facilities in the state of Nebraska. The award is named after Scott Wilber, a wastewater facility operator who worked for the City of Omaha and routinely exceeded operations and maintenance expectations to ensure his facility remained in compliance.
The Scott Wilber Awards Committee reviews each applicant’s facility and discusses day to day activities that occur at the plant. The committee awards each facility receiving a score of 75 or higher an Outstanding Facility Award. Each facility is also reviewed in comparison to other similarly sized facilities for a Best in Class Award. Lastly, the committee awards an Innovative Award to the most forward-thinking wastewater plant across the state who is utilizing a new immerging technology, is modifying the treatment process to achieve additional treatment, or is on the cutting edge of technology in the industry.
