About Warsaw Waste Treatment Facility:

Responsibilities

Wastewater treatment is the last line of defense against water pollution. It involves cleaning used water and sewage so it can be returned safely to our environment. While our lakes and streams clean water in much the same way, water treatment plants are faster and can handle more water. This makes treatment plants essential in areas where there's too much wastewater for nature to handle alone. 

Importance of Wastewater Treatment Plants 

Wastewater treatment plants protect public health from disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Today's treatment plants actually disinfect wastewater, eliminating many of these harmful organisms, and they protect water quality so we can enjoy clean oceans, lakes, streams, and rivers. In this way, wastewater treatment helps us enjoy life to the fullest.

About Wastewater:

Where Wastewater Comes From 

Each person in the U.S. contributes 50 to 100 gallons of wastewater every day. It can come from: 

  • Homes: Human and household wastes from toilets, sinks, baths, and drains

  • Industry, schools, and businesses: Chemicals and other wastes from factories, food service operations, airports, shopping centers, etc.

  • Storm runoff and groundwater: Water that collects in street drains during a storm, as well as groundwater that enters through cracks in sewers

How Treatment Plants Protect Our Water 

A wastewater treatment plant protects our water in three ways:

  1. Reducing organic matter and pollutants: Helpful bacteria and other microorganisms are used to consume organic matter in wastewater. The bacteria and microorganisms are then separated from the water.

  2. Restoring oxygen: Treatment facilities help ensure that the water put back into our lakes or rivers has enough oxygen to support life.

  3. Removing solids: This includes everything from rags and sticks to sand and smaller particles found in wastewater.

How You Can Help Improve Wastewater Treatment 

By using water wisely. Practice water conservation at home and at work by following these tips: 

  • Be aware of how much water you use in your household

  • By disposing of household products and other waste safely

  • Fix leaks, and install water-saving devices and appliances

  • Properly dispose of pet waste

  • Use fertilizers and pesticides carefully, following the product’s instructions

Hop River is a 15-barrel production micro-brewery and taproom in downtown Fort Wayne, IN, just north of the Riverfront development area.

Our brewery creates high quality craft beer in an authentic brewery taproom atmosphere and engages with its customers outside of the brewery through local production.

 We won two Gold medals and placed second overall for Best in Show at the distinguished 2018 Indiana State Fair Brewers’ Cup Professional Division. Maestro Vienna Lager won gold in the European Amber Lager Division and earned Runner-Up for Best in Show.  Harrison St. Wheat took home a gold medal in the German Wheat and Rye Division.  Craft brewers from across the country entered 661 beers for competition in the 20th anniversary Brewer’s Cup.

The IN Brewers’ Cup is considered one of the largest home and professional statewide craft beer competitions with entries this year from California, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana. Professional judges evaluate beers based on aroma, flavors, and appearance.

“We’re a brewery staffed by beer drinkers and enthusiasts,” said Head Brewer Kevin Debs. “Everyone works to make each new batch a little better than the batch before, because that’s the beer we want to drink ourselves—and the beer we want to share.”

Supplier Auditing Beyond the Standards

Typically, supplier management programs will use a supplier survey or an on-site audit to verify if a supplier is complaint with the requirements of a standard or regulation. However, for a supplier management program to be value added to an organization, the supplier evaluation should look beyond the requirements of a standard or regulation.  Supplier auditing should also consider items such as supplier capability, capacity, and contingency plans.
