GNP Company of Saint Cloud, Minnesota, and Marshall Durbin of Jasper, Alabama, have been awarded U.S. Poultry & Egg Association’s (USPOULTRY) 2013 Clean Water Award.  Presented annually, the award recognizes excellence in the operation of wastewater treatment plants in the poultry industry.

The presentations were made during USPOULTRY’s Environmental Management Seminar, held in New Orleans. The winners were selected by a committee made up of industry engineers and managers, university personnel, and retired state regulatory officials.

Awards were presented in two categories, full treatment and pretreatment.  The full treatment category covers facilities that fully reclaim wastewater prior to discharge into a receiving stream or final land application system. The pretreatment category includes facilities that discharge pretreated effluent to publicly-owned, full treatment facilities.
