SEQUIM — The state Department of Ecology has awarded the Sunland wastewater treatment facility its 2015 Waste Water Treatment Plant Outstanding Performance award.
The Sunland treatment facility is part of the Sunland Water District, which serves over 900 residents.
This is the second time Sunland has been awarded for achieving full compliance with its national pollutant discharge elimination permit.
Of over 300 systems in the state producing class A effluent, around 100 reach this level of efficiency.
This award is the result of exceptional effort by dedicated, technically trained employees and the “committed plant operator, Mike Cays,” according to Mike Langley, Sunland Water District manager.
