60th Anniversary Celebration
On June 21st 2017, the Lake Stevens Sewer District celebrated 60 years in our community at the Lake Stevens Waste Water Treatment Plant. Our celebration included a welcoming ceremony by our former General Manager Michael Bowers, the announcement of our Green Logo Competition by Tonya Christoffersen, former Manager of Administration (the current General Manager), a presentation about our District by Casey Mullins, Senior Treatment Plant Operator, and tours of the treatment plant by fellow employees.
Casey Mullins presentation about our District, "A long time ago, back in 1957 …a group of concerned Lake Stevens residents led by Jim and Nancy Mitchell saw aging wastewater disposal systems creating a very real environmental threat by allowing raw sewage to seep in to their pristine Lake. This caused large algae blooms and endangered public health. Something had to be done. Thus, the Lake Stevens Sewer District was born. To put this in the proper perspective, consider that this visionary insight came a full fifteen years BEFORE the Federal Government mandated the Clean Water Act of 1972."
Michael Bowers gave a special thanks to Kim Jones, Tonya Christoffersen, as well as Casey and Jeff our senior operators at the Plant, and the entire treatment plant staff for hosting todays celebration.
We would like to personally thank all those who attended our celebration as well, as those that had entered our Green Logo competition. Thank you for your commitment to helping keep your sewers clean.
Thank you to our guests, joining our team today to honor 60 years of dedicated service to the Lake Stevens region. We are pleased with a great turnout from several prominent citizens from Lake Stevens including our current and former District Commissioners.
