The CMSA wastewater treatment plant is a vital component of the central Marin wastewater management system. This extensive system includes over 70 pump stations, more than 450 miles of sewer pipelines located throughout the service area, as well as two major interceptors to transport the wastewater to the treatment plant, and a two-mile long outfall through which the treated wastewater is discharged into the San Francisco Bay. The CMSA Health and Safety Program focus is to promote and assist the agency in developing and maintaining workplace safety programs, while managing employee injury/return-to-work initiatives. The program includes providing employee safety training, developing and maintaining safety policies and procedures, performing safety assessments of facilities and employee work practices, monitoring changes in Cal/OSHA safety regulations, and providing a variety of other safety services.


The Plant Safety award is awarded in three categories: small, medium and large. Criteria include number of injuries, lost-time accidents, record keeping, in-house training, emergency response and program implementation.
