Sewer District wins collection system award

By From page A4 | May 16, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A statewide organization ranks the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District as best in California among its size for its sewer system.

The district has won a California Water Environment Association award for having the best collection system of less than 250 miles. It has a sewer system of about 70 miles that brings sewage to the wastewater treatment plant along Chadbourne Road on the edge of Suisun Marsh.

Founded in 1927, the California Water Environment Association is a nonprofit with 9,000 wastewater professionals as its members. It does such things as offer educational and training events and certifies wastewater professionals.

“This award recognizes the high level of reliability and outstanding quality of the district’s wastewater collection system,” said Marcie Bodeaux, Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District senior environmental engineer, in a press release.

The Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District a few weeks ago announced it had won two awards. The National Association of Clean Water Agencies gave it a Platinum Peak Performance Award for its success in meeting national discharge standards and the California Sanitation Risk Management Authority gave it the Workers’ Compensation Excellence Award.

In addition, the district’s Christina Harshell won the Laboratory Analyst of the Year Award from the California Water Environment Association and the Water Environment Federation.

The Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District in 2011 won the California Water Environmental Association’s plant of the year award for its size category.

    I should hope that the comparatively small operation run by a civil servant who makes about $300,000 a year should win something! Now watch that other hog at the public trough rush to his defense!
