The Maintenance Department handles all of the preventive and corrective maintenance they have the capability to handle. Contracts are in place for preventive and predictive maintenance of equipment that requires more specialized training. We call in contract workers for corrective maintenance beyond the capability of the maintenance department as required.

The emphasis of the JWCC maintenance plan is on preventive maintenance (PM) as opposed to corrective maintenance. The comprehensive PM plan in place has three goals: to keep the equipment operating at maximum efficiency; to prevent unscheduled shutdowns; and to extend the useful life of the equipment and physical structures to their maximum.
