Mountain Minds Monday: Truckee Sanitation District the Past Present and Future

June 14, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Do you ever wonder what lies underneath the town of Truckee other than rock and the occasional opium cellar? According to the Truckee Sanitary District (TSD) there are over 300 miles of sewer pipes and 44 lift stations that protect the public health and environment of our mountain community. Join Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a local network of entrepreneurs and professionals on Monday, June 12th to hear a presentation on “The Truckee Underground” presented by …
General Manager-Chief Engineer of the Truckee Sanitary District, Blake R. Tresan
Field Worker, Kellen Babb
Board Clerk, Diane Piccioli
Administrative Specialist, Vanessa Vindel

Disease ran rampant at the end of the 19th century in Truckee due to poor sanitation. Now thanks to the efforts of TSD, Truckee has a modern waste collection system that helps to preserve the public health and environment. The TSD team will present on the history, current operations, and future challenges associated with this essential local utility provider.

Tresan has been with TSD since 2002 and holds a Master’s Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Davis. Babb has worked for TSD for 13 years and holds state certifications in wastewater collection systems maintenance. Piccioli and Vindel have worked for TSD for 3 and 5 years, respectively.
