Wastewater Treatment Facility Lead Mechanical Technician

My time at the Wastewater Treatment Facility is creeping up on 20 years. You know what brought me here? My car—just kidding! Rather, my military experience with the Navy where I worked in this kind of environment, so it’s been a good fit.

I perform fairly complex mechanical maintenance work on the wastewater treatment plant system and remote facilities. This includes ensuring adequate mechanical operation of the treatment and pumping facilities with much equipment troubleshooting.

I’ve enjoyed the variety of challenges that we have faced over the years; also the range of equipment we work on and my terrific co-workers. Most challenging of all has been learning how to be an effective leader.

I love living and working here with no commute over Highway 17 and avoidance of that North Bay rat race.
