Truckee Sanitary District wins award

TRUCKEE ” The Truckee Sanitary District has been named the Sewer Collection System of the Year for the third time.

The “Best of the Best” award for a medium size collection system was awarded by the California Water Environmental Association on April 30. Truckee Sanitary District won the award in 1997 and 2002 previously.

“I think our record on sewer spills is exemplary,” said Tom Selfridge, general manager for the district. “The award is an acknowledgement of the body of work we do.”

CWEA is a statewide organization of more than 8,000 wastewater professionals that is committed to keeping California’s waters clean.

“We are especially proud of the award this year,” said Dr. Robert Affeldt in a press release, president of the district board of directors. “In these difficult economic times, we are all trying to do more with less. CWEA’s recognition affirms that we are the ‘best of the best,’ and we are providing high-quality service to our ratepayers.”

The Truckee Sanitary District is the public agency that provides sewer collection and conveyance services to the greater Truckee area. Founded in 1906, the District is one of the oldest special districts in the state. It currently provides sewer service to over 10,000 properties in Nevada and Placer Counties.
