Stacy Thompson, deputy director of the Saco (Maine) Water Resource Recovery Department shares how she unexpectedly entered the clean water industry and what she loves about her career in this new video.

Thompson, who is also a NEIWPCC Commissioner, admits that working at a water resource recovery facility was not something she had planned on. “I never thought about wastewater in general,” said Thompson. “I never thought about what happened when I flushed the toilet and never thought about where the water in my kitchen sink went.” Stacy began her career working in the lab, working her way up to lead operator and eventually landing her current position as deputy director.
