Blog Updates Less Frequent as Testing & Training Continues

Posted Friday, May 10, 2013
 

As we move toward startup of the water treatment facility, our operator training and pre-system startup activities are continuing on the Lockheed Martin site.  All this training and testing is necessary to make sure the system is fully ready before it is started up. 

Since these same activities will continue for several weeks, I won’t be posting this blog as frequently as I have in the past.  But I’ll be sure to post any new information as it occurs.

In the meantime, if anyone has any questions about these construction activities, please give me a call at 941-554-3862 or 1-800-449-4486 and I’ll do my best to get the appropriate answers to your questions
