The City of Manhattan's Wastewater Treatment Plant was awarded the 2012 Plant Safety Award by the Kansas Rural Water Association (KRWA). Safety awards are presented to wastewater plant facilities that have high standards of excellence in safety operations. Inspectors from KRWA visit these type of treatment facilities unannounced for evaluations. Their findings are based on standard operating procedures for equipment, Kansas Department of Health compliance, safety policies, and safety training implemented to the employees.
