Industrial facilities honored for environmental compliance in 2016

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Business practices that support a vibrant economy while protecting regional water quality earned environmental awards for 76 local   industrial    facilities   from King County’s   Industrial Waste Program.

Each year, the Industrial Waste Program, which operates as part of King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division, honors local  facilities that contribute to regional pollution prevention goals by meeting their respective permit requirements.

Five facilities received the Commitment-to-Compliance Award for meeting  permit requirements every month for five consecutive years with no violations of any kind. These were:
Alaskan Copper Works - 6th Ave., Seattle
Baker Commodities Inc., Seattle
Boeing Commercial Airplane - North Field, Seattle
Seattle Public Utilities - Kent Highlands Landfill, Kent
Tri-Way Industries Inc., Auburn

Fifty-one facilities earned Gold Awards for compliance with wastewater discharge regulations every month in 2016 with no violations, and 25 facilities earned Silver Awards for having no King County monitoring discharge violations in 2017.
Since 1969, the Industrial Waste Program has required industrial facilities to pretreat wastewater before discharging it into the sewer to protect the King County’s treatment system and its workers as well as the environment and public health.
