Our systems are required to comply with federal and state regulations developed under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and other federal and state statutes. To ensure compliance with applicable regulations and track our environmental stewardship efforts, we employ an Environmental Management Plan system in tandem with an internal audit program.
Under the system, each facility has an Environmental Management Plan, with specific requirements and designated employees responsible for its implementation. Plans are reviewed by site management quarterly and updated with new requirements and changes in responsibility.
In addition, our internal environmental audit program reviews plans, procedures, and physical facilities. It proactively assesses our drinking water and wastewater services, seeking to identify potential vulnerabilities, thereby enabling us to address them.
