The primary job of the Maintenance Department is to plan, organize and direct building and grounds maintenance, repair, custodial work, security functions, fleet maintenance, and capitol improvements at Pyramid Lake Fisheries (PLF) facilities. The crew consists of a Manager, a Foreman, and one to two full time Maintenance workers. The Maintenance Department keeps the hatcheries operating year around. Duties vary and do not end when hatcheries shut down. Between the time when fish are stocked in the fall and eggs arrive in the spring, this department provides annual preventive maintenance to the hatchery systems, electrical controls, plumbing, HVAC, and all vehicles. Heavy equipment is in constant use to provide access to lake fish stocking sites and road access on the west shore.Occasionally, we have to assist the hatchery personnel in getting fishy.
