Here’s how wastewater plants across the country are saying, ‘Happy Holidays’

The holidays are here, and with them come clever parodies, well wishes and more from wastewater and sanitation districts across the country. Perhaps your team posed for a holiday picture, wished your customers Merry Christmas via social media or maybe even lit a few trees in front of your treatment plant. However you’ve chosen to express the season, we hope a little holiday joy crept into your daily routine.

Whether you’re working a holiday shift or enjoying time with family this week, we hope you enjoy this little break from seriousness. Take a few minutes to check out how other utilties have reached out to the public on social media during the holidays. 

And to all of our hard-working readers, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. Thanks for another year of readership. We couldn’t make Treatment Plant Operator magazine without you.
