Swisher recently received a JEA Pretreatment Award for its achievement of 100% environmental compliance. Swisher earned 14 Stars for its work on maintaining an environmentally sustainable business as part of the National Pretreatment Program.
The National Pretreatment Program, which began in 1972, uses permits and compliance activities at the local, state and federal levels to prevent untreated pollutants from entering publicly owned treatment works. The ultimate goal is to ensure everyone is provided clean, safe-to-use water.
Swisher is proud to be a part of this initiative and honored to receive an award that showcases its effort to be as sustainable as possible. Swisher is committed to sustainability projects that minimize environmental impact, even recently announcing a partnership with A1A Solar to commission a pilot-sized 6,000 square foot solar photovoltaic system.
JEA came out to participate in a socially distanced awards ceremony at the recently renovated Swisher headquarters in Jacksonville where the award was proudly received.
