The Maud Wastewater Plant was recently awarded Ana-lab Corporation’s Charles H. Whiteside Municipal Grant.  Ana-lab is a Kilgore-based company that provides environmental testing to a wide variety of clients nationwide.  Maud Wastewater Plant was nominated by their Ana-lab field scientist and was awarded the $5,000.00 grant based on the needs of the facility, as well as the quality of work done by plant employees.  
Chief of Wastewater Operations Teresa Embry was given the bulk of the credit by both Ana-lab representatives and city officials for keeping the plant in the kind of condition to deem it a worthy recipient of this year’s grant .  “I never have to worry about Teresa’s work,” said Ana-lab Field Scientist Troy White.  “Everything is always clean and neat and ready to go.  Teresa takes great pride in what she does.”
Embry herself agreed.  “My grandchildren live in this town,” she said.  “I take a lot of pride in providing them with clean water.”
Maud City Secretary Polly Moore says it has yet to be determined how the grant money will be spent, but did state, “We have a list of needs.”
The grant is also a major first step in new Maud mayor David Gipson’s plans to restore Maud inside and out, with infrastructure improvements across the city to be a main focus of city business under the new administration.
