The facility serves 62,130 people in Vandalia, Tipp City and Huber Heights, Ohio, and discharges into the Great Miami River. It is one of six national winners and EPA Region 5's only honoree in the Pre-Treatment Program category.

The awards, based on water quality compliance screenings and satisfactory environmental quality records, were announced during the recent Water Environment Federation's Technical Exposition and Conference.
