CONSTRUCTION OF NEW MANUFACTURING PLANT PROVIDES NEW JOBS TO TIOGA COUNTY THANKS TO THE MARCELLUS SHALE INDUSTRY
Hydro Recovery is pleased to announce the hiring of a Plant Manager and Project Engineer and is looking to hire plant operators
Blossburg, PA – Hydro Recovery LP of Blossburg, which broke ground on its new manufacturing facility late last Fall, today announced the hiring of two senior plant personnel as it continues ramping up operations for the new plant’s opening in April. The plant will be the first of its type in the region to treat flowback and production water from the exploration of natural gas in the Marcellus Shale region. As many as 12 additional personnel will be hired to operate the plant, in addition to the numerous jobs created by the plant’s construction.
Neil Hedrick, president of Hydro Recovery, said he was “pleased to announce that Rick Warren of Whitneyville, PA was hired in late December of 2011 as the Plant Manager.” In that role he will be in charge of the overall plant operations, maintenance, and supervision of all employees. Rick has been in the water and wastewater industries for over twenty-years with his most recent position working for the Lycoming County Water and Sewer Authority. He also has some experience with constructing, operating and maintaining source (stimulation) water intake stations for the Marcellus Shale gas play.
The company also hired Dustin M. Copenhaver of Camp Hill, PA as the Project Engineer. His duties will include the set up and operation of the onsite lab as well as being involved in the different projects the company is undertaking such as the treatment of Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) water at its next plant near Antrim. Dustin recently graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Chemical Engineering degree, and has now relocated to Blossburg.
