The U.S. Submergent Technologies team recently attended the Florida Rural Water Association Conference as an exhibitor. USST CEO Denver Stutler gave a “Sand & Grit Removal” presentation to the wastewater track, which educated and informed attendees on the model 949 Combination³®Truck and the GritGone Process® capabilities. At our booth, we talked to many individuals whose plants experience problems with sand and grit getting into the pipes and causing capacity issues. They are often times faced with a decision to shut their plants down completely in order to clean. We described how our process can serve as a solution to those who cannot take their plants offline. The last day of the conference, we had a surprise visit from Old Blue! Old Blue in front of the Wyndham at FRWA Orlando The model 949 crew came to visit us at our exhibit booth
