It was a pleasure to have Provo City's Mayor, Michelle Kaufusi, come to visit us today. We appreciate the time she spent with us, and the community where we work. Provo City is a great place!
Plum Creek Water Reclamation Authority (PCWRA) was started as a regional wastewater treatment facility in 1990. Until 2013 they were called Plum Creek Watewater Authority (PCWA) but in April of 2013 their name was changed to better represent what they did. PCWRA provides wastewater services to over 70,000. They cover: Town of Castle Rock, the Castle Pines Metropolitan District, the Castle Pines North Metropolitan District, the Silver Heights Water and Sanitation District and the Castleton Center Water and Sanitation District. PCWRA prides it’s self in processing over 4 million gallons of wastewater each day and ensuring that water is good for aquatic life, recreation and human consumption before it returns to the environment. We are very proud to have Plum Creek Water Reclamation Authority as part of the Caselle Community!
We are very excited to highlight one of our newest members of the Caselle Family, Watonga, OK. Watonga started as a tent city in the middle of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Reservation which makes it very fitted that it is named after the Arapaho Chief Wa-ton-gha which means Black Coyote. In 1940, the Watonga Cheese Factory was established. Since then, it has become famous for its’ many dairy products and inspired the annual Cheese Festival. Sadly due to Tropical Storm Erin in 2010, the factory was relocated, but the Cheese Festival continues to be a wonderful community celebration every October. Watonga is also home to the Blaine County Courthouse, which is one of just a few in Oklahoma that predate statehood. We are so proud to have Watonga as part of our community!
Special congratulations to the winners of our Commitment to Community Award who were announced at our Annual Conference on October 25th afternoon.
