Veterans take many skills with them when they retire from the military. Many of those skills are recaptured at the Loxahatchee River Environmental Control District Wastewater Treatment Facility in Jupiter, Florida.

All five maintenance staff members are U.S. Navy veterans. “Hiring veterans is a priority here,” says Tom Cavanaugh, lead operator, day shift 2. “Our human resources manager, Tom Reynolds, a Purple Heart recipient, is ex-Army.”

The district recruits veterans through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and its own website. “The core values of vets match up well with the district’s core values,” says Reynolds, who served in the infantry in Iraq from 2003 to 2008. “There’s a culture of hiring veterans here. The training and education they receive in the military matches up well with our training and education programs. They’re dedicated, work hard and ask good questions.”

Cavanaugh says the staff does most work in-house, including major projects. As a result, the plant saves money and gets the job done right: “These guys are amazing.”
