OUR COMMITMENT

​Greater efficiency with less environmental impact

Toho Water Authority has in place an Environmental Management System (EMS) for the water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, and lift stations.

 

WHAT IS AN EMS?

An EMS is a set of management processes and procedures that allow an organization to analyze, control, and reduce the environmental impact of its activities, products, and services and operate with greater efficiency and control.

 

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

We have a responsibility to our community and customers to ensure that we are taking all of the necessary actions to identify and minimize any potential environmental impacts.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

We are committed to the following:

  • Continually improving Toho's environmental policies and procedures in order to manage and minimize impacts on the environment
  • Comply with all federal, state, and local laws, regulations, statues, and other environmental requirements to which the organization subscribes to
  • Incorporate pollution prevention practices into the policies and procedures established for the operation of the water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, and lift stations
  • Openly communicate with internal and external customers the purpose and intent of Toho's environmental policies and procedures

 

Some of the improvements that have been put in place by our dedicated staff are:

  • New odor control units at three of our wastewater treatment plants
  • New odor control unit for lift station 57
  • Process controls to minimize chemical usage (where possible)
  • Increased sludge processing capabilities (reduces fossil fuel usage by semi-trucks)
  • Added a plant process manager to help operators will identify opportunities for improvement in their plant processes and troubleshooting when problems arise.

 

We look forward to continuing to grow our program and environmental awareness in pursuit of performance excellence.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our EMS Coordinator/Project Management Analyst Veronica Jensen at (407) 944-5072 or send an email to vjensen@tohowater.com.
