The Indiana Water Environment Association honored the Fort Wayne City Utilities’ Biosolids and Composting Facility with its 2017 Residuals & Resource Recovery Award for Excellence in Operating.
 
Fort Wayne’s award recognizes the facility for being cost-effective, environmentally safe and for providing residents with a product that recycles nutrients, improves soil conditions, and conserves natural resources, Fort Wayne City Utilities said in a news release.
 
IWEA touted Fort Wayne’s operation as effective in utilizing residuals from both the Water Pollution Control (sewage treatment) Plant and Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant and providing a viable resource to residents. The biosolids product combines cleaned and treated material from the sewage treatment process with composted leaves from the city’s annual leaf collection program and yard waste from a residential drop-off program.
