EPA has teamed with companion agencies, American Society of Civil Engineers, American Society of Landscape Architects, plus downstream stakeholder organizations to form a network advancing green stormwater management, water conservation and pollution control measures.
Augmenting a policy to keep vehicles in drive or forward gear at Aggregate Industries US is the installation of automated, drive-through mixer truck wash down equipment—a best management practice with safety, quality control and water conservation benefits. Aggregate Industries US began piloting water spray systems at four Minnesota plants in 2008. It enlisted a commercial vehicle wash equipment specialist, Key Solutions of Dassel, Minn., to tailor mixer-suited nozzle bars and racks, and oversee system engineering and installation.
