A total of 6 employees work within the White River system.
The Quechee system, staffed by 3 employees, serves the village of Quechee. In addition to an extensive collection system, there are 13 pump stations, which contribute flow to a tertiary treatment facility. This facility has a design capacity of 0.30 mgd and is currently operating at an average flow of 0.18 mgd. The Quechee system also includes a total of 24 subsurface disposal systems.
