West County Wastewater was mentioned in this SF Chronicle article today about the important work we do in our laboratories.

"There are also hopeful signs in the Bay Area’s sewers.

A wastewater surveillance tool created by researchers at UC Berkeley, which measures levels of COVID-19 genetic material in sewage systems, shows a sharp decline in the concentration of coronavirus RNA in the effluent in parts of San Francisco, Marin and Contra Costa counties." #wastewater #environment #science #covid19

We're having some fun with #FlashbackFriday here at West County Wastewater!
One of our hard-working staff came across these construction photographs of our Hilltop location in #richmondca from 1981! The last one is of our offices today, 41 years later!

What else was happening in 1981?
Raiders of the Lost Ark was released,
Prince Charles married Princess Diana,
Donkey Kong was released,
Jim Plunkett and his Oakland Raiders won Superbowl XV and
"Bette Davis Eyes" (Kim Carnes) topped the Billboard 100 charts!

Happy Friday from West County Wastewater! ❤💧
