Complex System

Montville’s plant is a Class Four treatment facility, the most complex in the grading system. As a result, it is required that a state-licensed Class IV operator run the facility, and in the town’s case, that is the superintendent, Derek Albertson. He is joined by other employees at the Pink Row site. Collectively, the team oversees the treatment facility, 75 miles of underground pipes in the collection system, 22 pump stations with a combined total of over 123 pumps, 219 motors, and 17 generators. All of this infrastructure is depended on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
