Wastecorp exhibited its pumps in Boston last week despite a snow storm that shut down almost three states for a day. Together with our New England representative WESCOR Associates Inc., everyone made it in on time for the start of the show but many of those travelling opted to stay safe (off the roads) or monitor the conditions at their WWTP’s. This turned out to be a smart decision since the storm surge associated with Winter Storm Juno caused erosion in some coastal areas of MA and flooding at other WWTP’s.
The show was to kick off Wastecorp’s 2015 promotional campaign with its Sludge Pro Double Disc Pumps, Mud Sucker Diaphragm Pumps, Trash Flow Trash Pumps and Sludge Master Plunger Pumps. The NEWEA annual conference in January involves many of Wastecorp’s nearby Wastewater Treatment Facilities in Plymouth, MA, Providence, RI, City of Boston, MA, Sandwich, MA, City of New Haven, CT. This is an important show for Wastecorp because many facilities who have either plunger pumps (Komline- Sanderson, Carter or Wastecorp) or double disc pumps can get factory tips for overhauling pumps or replacing those that have achieved the end of their service life. With the gritty seasonal wastewater changes WWTP’s must cope with, it’s helpful for operators to get hands-on tips and even brief training on how to operate their sewage pumps.
Nevertheless, by Tuesday, the Governor’s of Massacheusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut issued travel bans. It was even difficult for many show attendees to walk two city blocks in downtown Boston from surrounding hotels to the conference. Wastecorp and wescor still got to see many customers and consulting engineers and we look forward to more cooperative weather at next year’s NEWEA show.
