The Oklahoma Water Resources Board awarded Koch Fertilizer Enid LLC on Tuesday with its inaugural Water for 2060 Excellence Award, in recognition of its water reclamation efforts at the newly expanded nitrogen fertilizer plant. Part of the facility’s expansion included a 26,000-square-foot water treatment facility that aims to save more than 4 million gallons of drinking water per day.
The facility reclaims water previously discharged from the city and reuses it in Koch Fertilizer’s production processes, reducing waste and creating greater value for the facility and surrounding community. Created to recognize contributions that promote efficiency and conservation in Oklahoma, the award aims to fulfill the goal of the state’s Water for 2060 Act to consume no more fresh water in 2060 than in 2010.
