WAVERLY TWP. - Waverly Township plans to apply for a new grant by March 28. The PennPRIME Grant is available to its customers each year and can be used for procedure training, equipment and servicing equipment. If awarded the grant, township manager Bill White said at the March 25 meeting he would like a “confined space entry” class set.

A confined space class would teach the procedure policies on entering and exiting small spaces dealing with municipality work, for example a manhole. Along with the class, White would like to see a gas meter to be purchased. A gas meter would read levels of hazardous gas from a confined area.

After a meeting with Airgas, supervisor Thomas Durbin presented the list of safety recommendations for the wastewater treatment facility.

The important issues: keeping the cylinders for the wastewater treatment facility separate from each other; transporting them and changing cylinders. A new dolly will need to be purchased and Personal Protective Equipment such as hard hats, gloves, face shields and coveralls. A recommendation was made by Durbin to purchase the equipment and make the changes.
