"The professionals operating these wastewater treatment plants, as well as the municipalities and the state environmental agencies that support them, are essential to keeping our environment healthy by protecting water quality. I am proud to acknowledge Mr. Fish's outstanding contributions to help protect public health and water quality for so many years and to give him the credit he deserves," said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA's New England Office.

EPA's New England office formally acknowledged Mr. Fish for his outstanding service during the annual New England Water Environment Association Conference in Boston.
