Water and wastewater2

Fresh water is the most essential natural resource in the world. The issue of contaminated aquifers and tapped water tables is real and imminent. The Northwest is extremely fortunate that it contains some of the best and most drinkable water in the world. However, there is a serious concern that without proper management this wonderful resource will become spoiled.

The water and wastewater assessment ensures that the green team understands the amount of water being used by your company. It will help you identify problems with leaks, improper landscaping methods, and frivolous water use. For restaurants or businesses with a kitchen, the assessment will also inquire about grease traps, garbage disposals, and bulk liquids.

Help keep your drinking water clean, safe, and plentiful.
