The Mt. View Sanitary District (MVSD) provides wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal services for the central portion of the City of Martinez and adjacent unincorporated lands to the northeast. As of 2012, the population size was approximately 19,000, with projections to reach 22,087 by 2030 with an average annual growth rate of .9 percent. The customer base is currently an estimated 10,500 dwelling units and 270 commercial businesses; approximately 97 percent residential by parcel and 76 percent by flow.
Originally constructed in 1952, MVSD’s Wastewater Treatment Plant has had construction improvements, which increased its current capacity to 3.2 million gallons per day (mgd). Digested sludge is dewatered using a centrifuge. The resulting biosolids are transported to a landfill for use as alternative daily cover. The Treatment Plant effluent discharges into the District’s constructed wetland. The process of secondary treatment began in 1968 with the addition of a secondary clarifier, digester, thickener, and high rate biofilter. In 1974 the District reclaimed/constructed valuable wetlands (Moorhen Marsh) to accommodate a shallow water discharge providing a net environmental benefit.
MVSD provides wetlands programs within the 21-acre constructed Moorhen Marsh and the 130-acre McNabney Marsh. The District offers environmental education programs as well as recreational use for residents.
District staff maintains a strong working relationship with the Board of Directors and surrounding community. MVSD totals 16 full-time staff members. The culture is friendly and collaborative, with leaders implementing open door policies; being readily accessible to staff and the public. The team takes pride in its community relationship, often using a “we can work it out together” philosophy.
