Frank Casey began working in the wastewater field in 1995. During his 27 years at ISD, Frank has filled many roles. He has worked on emergency mitigation projects, served as lead supervisor during many sewer pipe and pump repairs, trained personnel when necessary, and even worked hay fields on the island ISD owns for its biosolids land disposal. Frank was promoted to lead collections system operator after 19 years of employment.
