These are the priorities of your ECUA. We strive daily to keep them foremost in our mind, in every decision we make and every action we take.
Learn more about the environmentally-friendly programs and services that ECUA offers, and how you can become a partner in all our Live Green initiatives.
ECUA has implemented key sustainable projects; composting, recycling (commercial and residential), bulk and curbside waste pickup, wastewater reclamation, water conservation, reuse of reclaimed water, that eliminates the need for any discharge into local surface waters, and the development of a fleet of vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).
We’ve also introduced “Green Features” into our new buildings, xeriscaping, reclaimed water irrigation, insulated windows, vapor barriers, low volume fixtures, touch on/off fixtures, tankless water heating, heat pumps, high-efficiency lamps, motion sensor controls, and an emergency management system.
Living Green is all about making choices and taking action to lead healthier and more sustainable lives. The ultimate impact of these efforts won’t be known for years, but collectively, they make it loud and clear that ECUA views green and clean innovations as our path forward to becoming more eco-friendly.
