LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Don't Forget about Stege Sanitary District
(Copy of letter to West County Times):
I enjoyed reading the feature "Where We Live, El Cerrito & Kensington" that appeared in Saturday's edition of the West County Times on February 2. I think it accurately reflected the current issues with our schools and local government, especially the resurgent positive feelings for the new El Cerrito Plaza and other emerging economic development
opportunities in our area.
However, you missed a golden opportunity to inform your readers about
another local government agency, the Stege Sanitary District (SSD).
SSD is a Special District of the State of California which has the
responsibility of collecting the sanitary wastes from El Cerrito,
Kensington and Richmond Annex and delivering them safely to the EBMUD
treatment plant in Oakland. SSD is governed by a five member Board of
Directors who are elected at large from residents of the district.
Currently Doug Bruce, from the Richmond Annex, is serving as
President. Other board members include Bea O'Keefe, Dwight Merrill
and Al Miller from El Cerrito, and Jay James from Kensington. Day to
day activities of the district are manages by Doug Humphrey, District
Manager and Engineer.
The SSD office is located at the end of Schmidt Lane, directly across
the lane from the El Cerrito Recycling Center. Questions about
district activities and policies are always welcome. They should be
directed to Mr. Humphrey at 510-524-4668 or in writing to him at SSD,
PO Box 537, El Cerrito, CA 94530-0537. The SSD web site URL is
