TPO Magazine Cover Story – For the Love of Wastewater: Operator Powers Career With Passion

CWEA member Ben Carver, Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District, is featured in the September cover story for Treatment Plant Operator. Ben took home the 2013 Operator of the Year award at his Local Section (Redwood Empire Section) and for the state at the 2014 Annual Conference.

“It’s nice to have a career filled with accomplishments,” says Carver. “But I can’t take all the credit because it’s really a team effort. Much of the success I’ve had is based on the great people I work with. All 58 sewer district employees, including our 14 treatment plant operators, function as a team to achieve great results for the community, so it’s everybody’s award.”
