In the News...

The City of Becker WWTF was awarded a Certificate of Commendation from the MPCA. The City has received sixteen of these wastewater commendations since 1977. Nine of these have been received over the last 12 years. This success, particularly in the most recent years, is a direct result from facility investment, excellent Council/Administration support, great departmental staffing and a good working relationship with Liberty Paper Inc.
