The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority was recognized yesterday by the Environmental Protection Agency and Mass Department of Environmental Protection for its use of stimulus funds for green energy projects at a number of its facilities.

The first award, in the drinking water category, is in recognition of MWRA’s installation of a 496 kW solar farm at the Carroll Water Treatment Plant in Marlborough, and a hydroelectric generator at the Loring Road Storage Tank in Weston.

The second, in the wastewater treatment category, is in recognition of a new wind turbine in Charlestown and solar installations at the Deer Island Treatment Plant in Winthrop.

The awards were presented by EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spaulding and DEP Commissioner Ken Kimmell. MWRA executive director Fred Laskey accepted the award, along with staff members involved in the projects.

The ceremony was held at the Carroll Treatment Plant. In addition to MWRA, 20 other municipal water and sewer facilities were honored for their creativity and innovation in utilizing renewable energy.
