Industrial facilities honored for environmental compliance in 2017

Sixty-two local facilities earned environmental awards from King County’s Industrial Waste Program for dedication to business practices that protected regional water quality in 2017.

Each year, the Industrial Waste Program, which operates as part of King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division, honors local facilities whose business practices contribute to regional pollution prevention goals.

Five facilities earned the Commitment-to-Compliance Award in 2017. To be qualified for the award, facilities must meet permit requirements every month for five consecutive years with zero violations.

These facilities earned the award:

  • Aramark Uniform & Career Apparel LLC, Kent
  • Protective Coatings Inc., Kent
  • A.O. Smith Corp., Renton
  • Boeing Commercial Airplane, Renton
  • Boeing Electronics Center, Renton

Forty-one facilities earned Gold Awards for compliance with wastewater discharge regulations every month in 2017 with no violations, and 16 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 conveyance and treatment systems, its workers, as well as the environment and public health.
