Pump and Pump System Workshop

Mark Egan of NapaSan gives a hands-on demonstration to our Pump Systems Workshop


BAYWORK presented a Pump and Pump Systems Workshop on March 20, 2019 at the offices of Napa County Health & Human Services. This event offered a unique combination of presentations and hands-on demonstrations. EBMUD and Valley Water opened the event with presentations on the Commissioning and Recommissioning processes. The group took a break for lunch and then headed over to NapaSan, where Mark Egan offered three different hands-on demonstrations of pump recommissioning and maintenance. One attendee commented that he liked “the way [the workshop] combined technical aspects of a pump’s operation with the mechanical.”

The workshop was also unique in that 52 of the 108 attendees had never been to a BAYWORK event before! BAYWORK’s North Bay pilot program has clearly been successful in engaging more employees in the area.
