It was designed for use on the renovated Carverside Bogs and is expected to reduce fertilizer application costs by minimizing the need for helicopters.

Two recent examples of the new service truck in action — In the past screening plant maintenance and setting gates would require a boom truck, a welding truck and two mechanics. The new crane-equipped truck now allows a single person to quickly and safely complete the repairs.
From Kevin Brown: The Pierceville pump consolidation project has been completed. This one new pump will service almost 34 acres and will result in increased efficiency and decreased operating costs by replacing four previously existing pumps (3 irrigation & 1 lift) with a single more efficient unit. This project started with sub-contractor Brian Reynolds digging a new waterhole to provide a cleaner water source — which will reduce filtration-related maintenance costs. Then the ADM in-house team took-over — Josh Souza built the new, larger-sized, pump house. Mike Peckham installed the new John Deere Diesel pump and related computer control systems. Don Levesque and Steve Wilcox fabricated the multi valve water manifold and filters and Billy Tribou and his gang installed a lot of underground piping to tie all of the existing irrigation lines to the new pump house.
