Calumet conducting stormwater pipe maintenance this week

Calumet Montana Refining is performing maintenance work on the publicly‐owned stormwater drainage pipe at the facility this week.

Weather permitting, a routine lining of the pipe will be completed.

This work is approved by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality, the City of Great Falls, and the Montana Department of Transportation.

“Safety and environmental stewardship are important to Calumet. In this spirit, prior to returning the pipe to its intended service, we will flush it to clean the pipe of any residue from the installation process. As a precautionary measure we will deploy absorbent and collection booms at the outfall of that system,” according to a Calumet release.
