Chief Business Development Officer

Congratulations to the City of Fort Worth and the Interceptor Condition Assessment Program (ICAP).  The National Association of Clean Water Agencies selected the project for its Operations and Environmental Performance Award. 

The award recognizes “an innovative and effective project, system or method relating to wastewater treatment plant or collection system operations developed and successfully implemented by an NACWA member in a cost-effective manner while achieving environmental compliance objectives.”

The City will be recognized at the NACWA Winter Conference Feb. 6-9 in Napa, California.

In the program’s first five years, the program has saved the City an estimated $18 million to $21.5 million. The program has reduced capital improvement costs, reduced reactive maintenance and clearning, enhanced understanding and knowledge of asset status and life cycle, and reduced risk of failure in the City’s large diameter wastewater interceptors.

The program previously received the Texas Environmental Excellence Award through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
