BOOTHBAY – The town of Lisbon wastewater treatment facility was awarded the Maine Department of Environmental Protection 2006 Certificate of Achievement. DEP Commissioner David Littell presented the award to Operations Manager Gerry Kamke, Chief Operator Everett Ridley and Town Engineer Ryan Leighton at the Maine Waste Water Control Association’s 40th annual fall meeting.

The annual three-day meeting consisted of technical sessions, a vendor show and a golf tournament.

The award reads as follow: “The department would like to recognize Gerry Kamke, operations manager; Everett Ridley, chief operator; Steve Aievoli, mechanic; Matt Bergmann, operator; and Ryan Leighton, town engineer of the town of Lisbon wastewater treatment plant.

“It is obvious that the Town of Lisbon Wastewater Treatment Plant team takes great pride in it work. Your positive attitudes, dedication to teamwork and commitment to achieving specific goals is impressive.

“Your work over the last several years to upgrade the system’s pump stations is particularly noteworthy. You all have worked diligently on this project to solve problems and improve performance and the pump stations are now much improved. Your teamwork approach will no doubt lead to the same success with the ongoing headworks upgrade.

“Continue with the great work and thank you for a job well done.”

Town Manager Curtis Lunt, Town Councilors Michael Bowie, Layne Curtis and Charles Smith were the decision-makers who supported staff efforts.
