Ross Valley Sanitary District (RVSD) was presented with the California Water Environment Association (CWEA) Wastewater Collection System of the Year Award in the category of “small system.” RVSD was selected as the top sewer system in the state in 2022 out of the hundreds of systems less than 250 miles in length.

“This distinguished award is possible because of the dedication of people throughout our organization, including board members, field staff, administrative staff, and our community of consultants and contractors,” said Steve Moore, RVSD General Manager. “Our focus on delivering projects and results in a data-driven manner, at all levels of our organization, was recognized by the CWEA judges. We will continue to look for innovative and cost-effective ways to provide excellent customer service to our local community, while renewing and maintaining the infrastructure that protects our health and water environment.”

The annual award, given to wastewater agencies statewide in small, medium, and large categories was presented at the CWEA Annual Conference held in San Diego in April. Rating criteria for judging the award nominees include regulatory compliance, special accomplishments, maintenance program (preventive actions, repairs, and rehabilitation), safety program and record, training program, emergency procedures, and administrative procedures. To be considered in each award category, nominees must be a current CWEA member, hold a current Collection Systems Certification by CWEA, and have direct operations/maintenance responsibilities in a collection system.
