Re: Pollution Prevention for Publicly Owned Treatment Works(POTWs)
The City of Portland, Oregon owns and operates two wastewater treatment plants.
I have worked with both facilities on how they can voluntarily improve
practices and processes to prevent pollution. Some ideas include:
Pre-screening purchase requests to evaluate why that particular
chemical is needed, and if there may be a less toxic alternative;
Using bicycles to commute within the plant, rather than autos/trucks;
Mapping the flow of materials to determine where losses occur.
If you would like more information, you can email/call me direct.
