The City of Beaumont recognized three local industries on Wednesday, Nov. 7, for exceptional work in keeping local waterways clean through their pretreatment of waste water. JTB Recycling, Inc., received the award for Most Improved Industry.
Munro's Dry Cleaning and Union Pacific Railroad shared the Excellence Award for 2011. Those two businesses had 100 percent compliance with all pretreatment requirements.
The pretreatment program ensures that industries comply with city, state and federal requirements when discharging their waste water into the city's sewer system.
