The NIOA May Newsletter

Spring has sprung, the dandelions are growing & it is mushroom time! I hope this newsletter finds you well! Here are a few items to keep in mind as you try to catch up on mowing!

April NIOA Training Cancelled

Good afternoon everyone! We regret to announce that we are cancelling the April NIOA training in Warsaw.

We have had a couple members ask about the status of CEU's - we are still actively working with IDEM to get previous training CEU's approved and applied to everyone who attended. This is a high priority issue for us & we are working to get this resolved as soon as possible,

Pump Operation & Maintenance Training - March 11

A quick reminder of Pump Operation & Maintenance Training on Wednesday, March 11, starting @ 10:30 am. We are applying for 3 technical CEU's for both Water & Wastewater licenses. Water Superintendent Tom Selman will give us a tour of one of Angola's drinking water treatment plant. After lunch, Ray Warren, Service Manager for Homa Pump Technologies, will discuss operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair of submersible pumps. 


Good Mornining everyone!  Hope everyone is staying warm during this cold spell.


This is just a note to let everone know that the March and April meetings are listed on the event calander.  There is no meeting in May and we may be in Kendallville for June.  The golf outing in July is still in the search phase for a location.


Enjoy your day.


January Meeting in Bremen.

Because of the predicted cold temps and that there isn't anything new at the Bremen plant, the meeting on Wednesday will only be a hour presentation by Lindsay Grossmann on Lab Safety and Sampling.  It will be for only 2 CEU's and no lunch will be provided.  Please check to NIOA website for a map to the Bremen Fire Station.

Golf Outing???

As of 10:30 AM today, I only have 6 golfers registered for Wednesday's outing in Bremen.  If I don't have at least 40 golfers by 2 PM today, the outing will have to be canceled.  The golf course needs that many to justify the cost they gave to us and closing the course for us. Please respond to this email ASAP if you are interested in golfing Wednesday.  More information is on the NIOA website in the calander events tab.
