Water Well Project

Chelsea Shoji - Monday, June 29, 2020

HOMETOWN H2O Water Well Project!

June 24th 2020, we kicked off a project in partnership with Xylem’s (Goulds) Watermark Foundation and Waterboys called Hometown H2O - where we, along with McMullen Drilling and McMullen Water Systems, are working together to install a new water well for a retired couple that lives near Jewel, Oregon.

For 10 years, Steve and Lana Gleason have traveled 40 miles to fill 1-gallon jugs at a spring for clean drinking water. After unsuccessfully applying for a bank loan to install a water well, a neighbor told the couple about the Water Well Trust. The Water Well Trust assists low-income families in numerous ways as the Gleason’s were interested in a low-interest loan as they could not afford it on their retirement income. After submitting their application, the Water Well Trust reached out to Mitchell's VP of Business Development, Matt Johnson, who then got Xylem Watermark and the Waterboys excited to help.

Two weeks ago, Steve and Lana learned that their low-interest loan would be covered in full by Waterboys. When Steve, a retired commercial fisherman and self-proclaimed “tough guy”, learned of this news over a Zoom call, he and Lana broke down in tears of joy.

Last week, McMullen Drilling broke ground and have attempted two wells. Unfortunately, both wells have not produced more than 2 GPM of salt water and they are attempting a third well today 6/29/20.

Volunteers at our Wilsonville branch are building a new pump house for the Gleasons and hope to install it this week. Our marketing team is on-hand to document the project through video and photo, and Xylem has generously offered to compile our footage into a professional documentary-style short-film.

Power of Partnership

- Friday, April 07, 2017

The Portland location of a national motel chain was having severe sewage issues. The equipment in their wet well was old, failing regularly, and causing the site manager a ton of problems. Additionally, the ever-changing waste stream was plugging the pumps, which in turn caused overflow conditions and on several occasions the need for a vac truck.

One of Mitchell Lewis & Staver’s longtime partners, Hillsboro Pump Service was contacted by the motel manager for much-needed help. Mitchell Lewis met with HPS for an on-site review. It was determined that the existing pumps were still a good choice for the required flow/head, but the liquid now contained many “non-pumpable” solids that needed to be addressed. To handle this, the team decided on the tried and true solids destroyer, the Landia Eradigator, a submersible chopper pump, that would also mix the wet well contents with its angled discharge nozzle.

The complete solution is put into action when the pump on float activates. The Eradigator runs for 1 min to chop and mix all wet well contents, it then shuts off, and the on-call, self-priming pump removes the liquid until the stop float is reached. MLS provided the UL control panel as well which required the use of a Danfoss VFD to convert the sites 1/230v power to 2/230v power to run the Eradigator. The MLS Control Panel provided some dry contacts, so the manager could have remote indication of any problems. While only in service for a short time at this point, the station has been trouble-free and the site manager is very appreciative of everyone’s efforts.

MLS Controls Making Green

- Wednesday, December 30, 2015

When New Earth of San Antonio, Texas went looking for a heavy-duty, aggressive grinding machine to annually convert 350,000 tons of highly-variable organic waste into high-grade garden products, they turned to West Salem Machine (WSM). Typically, this type of diverse, organically-rich waste including food waste, grass clippings, leaves, livestock manures and tree trimmings ends up buried in conventional landfills – going to waste. New Earth gives it a second, vital purpose.

Likewise, the efficient, aggressive processing of a range of materials with such dynamic densities requires a tough, sensor-responsive controller of intelligent design. Genuine Mitchell's Controls utilizing a Danfoss VFD, keep the whole process moving – monitoring, regulating and adjusting production feed in relation to the density of material. The rigorous demands of industrial applications require robust electronic controls which optimize operations and keep production flowing.
