Treatment Plants - Operations & Maintenance
| Clean water is a big job: This map shows Onondaga County's treatment plants and the pump stations in the system. It also shows the outline of the County Sanitary District and treatment plant service areas.
Processing over 33 billion gallons of wastewater each
year puts an immense burden on the treatment
facilities. WEP provides proactive maintenance to
mechanical equipment, piped utilities, buildings and
grounds of the eight treatment plants and the chemical
feed systems at several pump stations.
Our skilled personnel perform machine repair and
machine shop services. We have workers qualified in
welding, plumbing, heating, ventilating,
air conditioning, locksmithing, roofing, and masonry.
They maintain over 5000 pieces of mechanical
equipment, 180 tanks, and over 70 structures.
The dynamic maintenance programs include "Predictive
Maintenance" (PdM) through machine monitoring and
vibration analysis, laser shaft and sheave alignment,
and lubricant wear-metal analysis.
Workers have been trained in many areas
including boiler operations, welding, cutting,
plumbing, rotating equipment repair, lubrication,
equipment monitoring, and proper use of measurement
tools. Additional training involved fork truck
operation and safety, "Right-to-Know," and chemical
Record keeping has undergone a dramatic
transformationfrom a manual system to an automated
database that will include not only maintenance but
also materials ordering, receiving, and inventory.
