As the country began to give consideration for phasing in life as we once knew it, in accordance with guidelines from the CDC(Center for Disease Control and Prevention), Executive branch, and Governmental bodies of each state, the pandemic was still a major concern regarding COVID-19.
Here at the KRMA facility, there were small changes mostly for the health and safety of the staff. The management staff continued to address the for seeable issues and concerns of the facility while the labor staff of the I.U.O.E. (International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 399) continued the efficient operations of the facility. With nearly 9 inches of rainfall for the month of May and an already saturated ground from the rainfall in April it is more than a small effort to keep thing moving.
Again as I acknowledge the efforts that the KRMA staff perform 24 hour a day, 365 days a year, I also say thank you and appreciate those on the front line performing the necessary needs of the community.
The month of May, the KRMA staff met all limits with the exception of two daily excursion of (IEPA) Illinois Environmental Protection Agency NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) permits.
