 Fuller Industries of Great Bend is the recipient of the annual Kansas Water Environment Association’s Gold Pretreatment Compliance Award, Mike Bader, City of Great Bend Waste water Treatment Plant manager announced this week.  
The Gold Award will be presented at the 2014 Annual KWEA/Kansas American Water Works Association conference at Topeka’s Capital Plaza Hotel on Aug. 26 during the KWEA Awards Luncheon at Noon in the Grand Eagle Ballroom.
This year’s Industrial Workshop sessions will be presented from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 26.  
“We are very careful to make sure our waste water is pre-treated and safe before we release it into the city waste water system,” said Brady Gros, Fuller’s president and CEO.  “It is nice that somebody finalized recognized it.”
Fuller Industries must maintain our processes that produce waste water such that it does not create undue pollutants, said Lew Gray, Fuller’s vice-president of research and development. “Our employees in manufacturing, laboratory and regulatory areas each have responsibilities to make that happen. That dedication has been seen as a positive effort for the local treatment facility.”   
The Great Bend City Wastewater Treatment Plant  originally made the nomination of Fuller Industries to the Kansas Water Environmental Association.    
Fuller Industries was awarded the honor based on its greater than 95 percent compliance efforts in maintenance of the wastewater permits which includes Fuller’s broom/mop handle paint line and “positive relationship with the local municipality,” Gray said
