MVSD provides wastewater collection, treatment and disposal services to a portion of the City of Martinez and unincorporated northeast land. MVSD also oversees, through a franchise agreement, trash collection, recycling and disposal services. An independent special district, MVSD serves an estimated population of around 19,000 with around 1,100 residential and commercial sewer connections. Wastewater reaches the plant through 100 miles of underground pipelines and four strategically spaced pump stations. Because MSVD has a small staff, employees must be versatile, willing to do a lot of different tasks and quickly to take on new roles and responsibilities. MVSD is one of the few sanitary districts in the State which discharges treated effluent into a series of marshes. This wetland is a rich and diverse area for wildlife and is readily accessible to the public. MSVD is a training focused organization that encourages its employees to grow and advance and offers training opportunities.
