Wataaahhh....
Water treatment and distribution. Pretty boring job. I run around all day making sure our wells are running and getting the right blend of Chlorine and ammonia sulfate into the water system to keep the water safe and clean. Regular maintenance on stuff... replacing pumps and valves, flushing water lines occasionally.

Here's something pretty cool. Not my job, but this reuse facility recycles raw sewage into water for use at the Graphic Packaging paper plant. They make food grade products. And yes, it's safe to drink. This recycled sewage is actually cleaner than the water I distribute to West Monroe for drinking water, but it has a very high Chlorine residual.

The lady in this picture is the head of pretty much all environmental stuff here. My boss's boss. Helluva a moment to catch a pic...

This what I am on now. An amazing addition to a nursing home. These pics were taken about 3 weeks before we turned the building over to them.

I ran this bad boy for awhile too, its a CAS stoneslinger on an International 7600 truck with 18 speed transmission. This s.o.b. will lob gravel 140 feet to place rock on a hillside or anywhere not easily accessible. We use it to fill residential foundations so concrete can be poured.

Each stall is stained oak as are the walls. Total was 167,000 ft. of stained wood. Stained on the job and both built in 5 months.
So that's what you do! That's what funds that arsenal you posted pics of huh.... You hiring!
