Letter: Former Krofta employee's claims invite skepticism

To the editor:

I happened to read a letter printed in The Eagle Feb. 21 and I saw in that letter that a former employee of Krofta Engineering is claiming to be the "co-inventor" and "builder" of the Krofta treatment equipment installed at the Pittsfield water plants. I knew the writer during my many years with Krofta as a genial (though not modest) member of the municipal sales staff.

To my knowledge, he had no engineering or technical training, and had no input into the design or installation of any equipment. I do not have data or recent knowledge of the city water or wastewater systems, so I will not comment on claims of different technical approaches or the costs thereof. I urge your readers to consider the reliability of the source when they evaluate any claims written in letters to the editor.

Dan Guss,

State College, Pa.

The writer is a former vice president of Krofta Engineering Corporation.
