At the Board of Commissioners meeting of April 25, 2022, the State Office of Drinking Water with the Department of Health presented the “Grace Under Pressure” award to Water and Wastewater Manager Tom Martin for his leadership in restoring water to Sekiu/Clallam Bay after the large landslide ruptured the water main in November 2021.
The Office presents several categories of awards annually in recognition of National Drinking Water Week (May 1-7, 2022) to recognize individual water systems and operators.
General Manager Sean Worthington commented “We are proud of Tom and his department for their significant effort in the restoration of service. While this is an award specifically designated for water system operators, we recognize that many across the District were involved in the restoration effort. It was truly an example of how an event can reach across multiple departments.”
