Medfield, Mass. Wastewater Treatment Plant Recognized for Excellence
BOSTON - The Medfield Wastewater Treatment Plant was recently selected by EPA for a 2014 Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Excellence Award.
The Medfield Wastewater Treatment Plant staff, led by Superintendent Robert McDonald, was recognized by EPA's New England Office for exceptional work in operating and maintaining the wastewater treatment plant. The plant was one of five facilities in New England acknowledged for exemplary performance during 2014.
"The professionals operating these wastewater treatment plants, as well as the municipalities and the state environmental agencies that support them, are essential to keeping our environment healthy by protecting water quality. I am proud to give them the credit they deserve," said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA's New England office.
The EPA Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Excellence Award was established to recognize and honor the employees of publicly owned wastewater treatment plants for its commitment to improving water quality with outstanding plant operations and maintenance. More often than not, and particularly with the smaller facilities, conscientious operators and staff continue to perform exceptionally with limited resources.
The Medfield Wastewater Treatment Plant was acknowledged for its outstanding work at the annual New England Water Environment Association Conference in Boston, on Jan. 28. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection was instrumental in nominating this facility.
