Wayne Farms' poultry further-processing plant in Decatur recently won honorable mention in the pretreatment category in the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association's 2009 Clean Water Awards.
The association gives the awards annually in recognition of excellence in the operation of wastewater treatment plants. The pretreatment category covers facilities that discharge pretreated effluent to publicly-owened full treatment facilities.
The awards were presented during the association's recent environmental management seminar in Nashville.
