LOS ANGELES, CA (October 28, 2020) — Today the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) presented LA Sanitation and Environment (LASAN) with two of this year’s NACWA Peak Performance Awards. This annual award is presented to honorees who have achieved excellence in operational performance and permit compliance. LASAN's Hyperion Water Treatment Plan received a Gold Award and Terminal Island Water Reclamation Plant received a Silver Award.

"We always strive for excellence and sustainability, in pursuit of LA's Zero Wasted Water by 2035 goals," said Enrique C.
