Pennsylvania and Maryland personnel congregated in the Antrim Township municipal building to learn about equipment used in operating their sewer systems. Antrim is open to allowing groups to use the room for meetings.

The Antrim Township municipal meeting room has come in handy for more than just the board of supervisors. The renovated space has been home for the G-A School District school board since August, and is available for other purposes as well.

A supplier for Antrim Township and other municipalities used the space for a seminar on Jan. 15. Envirep sponsored the meeting, bringing in clients from Antrim, Guilford Township, Greencastle, McConnellsburg, and the Maryland entities of Frederick County Public Schools, Carroll County, Brunswick and New Windsor. The company explained how the sewer departments of each could best use its OmniSite monitor. Antrim Township has 17 units at its lift stations.

Antrim public works director Carl Rundquist and utility department employees Doug McCulloh, Tom Green Sr. and Jay Mongan were in attendance. So were Kevin Hunsberger and Jon Hess from the Greencastle waste water treatment plant.

“We’re excited to be able to use the board room for more than just the supervisor meetings,” said Antrim administrator Brad Graham. “It was used today as a training opportunity for us and others.”
