Truckee Sanitary District has received two awards from the Sierra Section of the California Water Environment Association (CWEA), a state association dedicated to the protection of the water environment through education and certification.

District employee and long-time Truckee resident, Jose Esparza, received the Collection Person of the Year award and the district was selected to receive the Collection System of the Year Award for medium-sized agencies (200 to 500 miles of sewer pipe).

Esparza, a collection systems worker, who has been with the district for two years, was recognized for his hard work, attention to detail, and great attitude.

The Collection System of the Year award went to Truckee Sanitary District for the third-straight year based largely on a track record of no sewer spills. Board Chair Denny Anderson praised district staff for their hard work and outstanding commitment to protecting the rivers, streams, and lakes of our community.

The district will now compete against other wastewater agencies for the statewide award.

In addition to the awards, District Lift Station Worker Morgan Walters was sworn in as president of the Sierra Section of CWEA for 2019.
