(Boston—March 1, 2010) The Hanover, New Hampshire Water Reclamation Facility was recently selected by EPA for a Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Excellence Award.
The staff of Hanover, New Hampshire Water Reclamation Facility, led by Kevin MacLean, Superintendent, was recognized by EPA's New England Office for exceptional work in operating and maintaining the plant. The plant was among six facilities in New England acknowledged for exemplary performance during 2009. The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services was instrumental in nominating this facility.
Besides Kevin MacLean, Hanover, New Hampshire Water Reclamation staff includes:
Dennis Smith, Mark Roper, Seth Bean, Richard Scheuer, and Brandon Corey. In addition, the facility has been provided with outstanding support from: Peter Kulbacki, DPW Director, Julia Griffin, Town Manager, the Hanover Board of Selectmen, Underwood Engineers, Inc., the NHDES Wastewater Operations Section, and Hanover residents.
“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,” said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA's New England Office. “I am proud to give them the credit they deserve.”
The EPA Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Excellence Award was established to recognize and honor the employees of publicly owned wastewater treatment plants for their commitment to improving water quality with outstanding plant operations and maintenance and on-going operator training. More often than not and particularly with the smaller facilities, conscientious operators and staff continue to perform exceptionally with limited resources.
The Hanover, New Hampshire Water Reclamation Plant was acknowledged on January 27th at the annual New England Water Environment Association Conference in Boston.
