Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans Recognized for Outstanding Compliance
On June 14, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies recognized the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans with the 2014 Platinum Award.
New Orleans' West Bank Facility won the award for achieving five years of compliance, meaning five years without a single violation. Veolia North America has provided operation, maintenance and management services
to the S&WB since 1992, and the public-private partnership remains one of the largest in the United States. Together the S&WB and Veolia have generated over $35 million in savings for residents, and been consistently recognized for their outstanding compliance record with State and EPA regulations.
In June 2015, the S&WB and Veolia renewed their partnership
with a 10-year, $122 million contract.
