A nonprofit organization for wastewater professionals throughout the state recognized the city of Lodi's White Slough wastewater plant at the meeting.
The California Water Environment Association Northern San Joaquin Section presented the award. The city's treatment plant beat out other treatment plants in Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tuolomne counties. The city will advance on to compete for the statewide award.
Mayor Alan Nakanishi thanked the organization for the award, as well as the city employees who work at White Slough.
"Water is very important," Nakanishi said. "To the wastewater employees, thank you so much. Lodi is a great city because of workers like you."

In a 4-to-1 vote, the Lodi City Council approved a new development code and zoning map on Wednesday night that will dictate rules for new construction in the city for years to come.
Mayor Alan Nakanishi voted against approving the documents after asking whether the city could meet the plan's objectives without passing the plan itself, which he worried would create more regulations.
