Water Treatment Plant in Yakima Wins Award

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Don't think twice about drinking a glass of tap water in Yakima.

The Yakima Drinking Water Treatment Plant recently received the Bronze Certificate of Achievement. The award recognizes the plant for having extraordinary clean drinking water over the past three years. Plant Supervisor Jeff Bond says the plant hopes to win even bigger awards in the future.

"After a full ten years of operating that way then you get the Gold Award," Bond said. "So it's just a stepping stone of moving towards higher awards. That's our goal."

Only five treatment plants in Washington state received the Bronze Award.
