My name is Bob Gray and I am the Superintendent of the Churubusco Wastewater Treatment Plant. I worked eighteen years as the maintenance/operations worker until I became superintendent a couple of years ago. I never wanted to become superintendent until the town made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
Bob Gray, Superintendent - Churubusco Wastewater Treatment Plant
Soon after I became Superintendent I had many questions about the running of a sewage plant. Many of these questions were answered by Kevin Wenzel of the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water. Mr. Wenzel would stop by and help me. If he didn't know the answer, he would he would find it and get back to me. He would also make connections between me and other superintendents so that we could compare plants.
Mr. Wenzel has helped me with QC in my lab, setting up the Net-DMR,pretreatment programs, and researching cheaper options of removing sludge. Sometimes he stops by and we just talk about the wastewater industry and compare ideas. He always keeps me up to date on the Alliance's upcoming training.
In conclusion, I once again want to thank the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water for all the help they have given me since I have become superintendent. With Mr.Wenzel stopping by, their trainings, conferences, and expos, have helped me tremendously. Thank you!
