LTU Receives Wastewater Awards

Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) today announced it has received two awards in the area of wastewater management.

Lincoln Wastewater System received the 2020 Nebraska Water Environmental Association Scott Wilber Award for its commitment to excellence in facility operation and maintenance of large and medium advanced municipal facilities while maintaining environmental compliance.

Lincoln Wastewater System's Theresa Street Facility received the Special Innovation Award for its work with biogas recovery and the generation of renewable natural gas to be used as vehicle fuel.

"I am so proud of our Lincoln Wastewater System team," said Donna Garden, Assistant Director of Utilities. "These facilities are outstanding examples of resilience, excellence in safety, operations and maintenance, and forward-thinking technology."

Lincoln Wastewater System's two facilities implement innovative programs to effectively recover and treat approximately 32-million gallons of wastewater each day.
