Local Firms Recognized For Environmental Stewardship

Huntersville – The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department honored 27 local companies this week for environmental excellence in protecting our community's water quality.
The award winners are among more than 60 industrial companies in Mecklenburg County that discharge high-strength wastewater into the city’s wastewater system. The discharge permits and pretreatment processes are monitored by CMUD to ensure that wastewater is treated properly and returned to the environment safely.

Environmental Excellence Award winners have complied with pollution discharge requirements and have exhibited a proactive and innovative approach to protecting water quality. The honorees were recognized during a luncheon Tuesday at the Lee Dukes Water Treatment Plant in Huntersville.
