Stanwood: City earns performance award
For the sixth year in a row, the city of Stanwood has earned the state's Wastewater Treatment Plant Outstanding Performance award.
Mayor Dianne White said that the Department of Ecology audits about 300 wastewater treatment plants in the state and only 108 achieved full compliance with permitting for 2011.
"This department of the city is really small and to achieve this award everything has to be perfect, 24/7," White said.
