Water & sewer districts honors employees


Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) has announced that employee Jarred Myers received the Collection Systems Award from the Ohio Water Environment Association (OWEA) Northwest Chapter in Napoleon, Ohio. This award recognizes Jarred for his hard work in wastewater management in the area. Jarred is a Water Sewer Construction Crew Leader at the District, holds an EPA Class II Water Distribution License and an EPA Class II Waste Water Collection License.

On Tuesday, May 9, five District employees, Claud Barringer, Bryan Martikan, Jarred Myers, Tom McGrain and Todd Saums, competed in the Operations Challenge regional invitational in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The “Ops Challenge” is an intense competition involving timed events in wastewater treatment operations, maintenance, laboratory, safety and collection systems personnel.

The team “Dirty Deeds,” took first place in lab, second in safety, third in collections and third place overall. The team is scheduled to compete in June in Cincinnati, Ohio in a statewide competition in hopes of advancing to the national operations challenge in Chicago this fall.
