The Florida Department of Environmental Protection presented the 2018 Plant Operations Excellence Award in the small community category to the Naval Air Station Whiting Field Public Works department on Feb. 12 at Northwest Florida College.

This is the seventh consecutive year Whiting Field has received the recognition.      

"The driving factor in the award was the partnership between the environmental division, which is responsible for monitoring water quality compliance to ensure it’s safe, and the operations plant," said Jeff Kissler, NAS Whiting Field installation environmental program director. 

The operations plant is run by the installation contracting company, Electronic Meteorology Laboratory, which is responsible for the treatment maintenance of the plant.
