Aug 1, 2014
Hargrove Engineers + Constructers will be presented with the 2014 Partners for Environmental Progress (PEP) Environmental Stewardship Award on April 15, 2014. PEP is hosting the award ceremony at their annual membership meeting at 5:30 PM on April 15, 2014, at 5 Rivers Delta in Spanish Fort, Ala. The PEP Member Awards are presented to member companies that have made a significant and positive contribution to the Gulf Coast region's triple bottom line: economically, environmentally and socially. Hargrove is being recognized for their work with the City of Enterprise Alabama's Publicly-Owned Treatment Works to study low-level mercury in the treated wastewater discharge. Working closely with ADEM and lab testing companies, Hargrove planned and executed a wastewater study more thorough than is typically conducted. Rigorous studies of this nature help the municipality or industrial plant avoid false alarms and focus on real environmental concerns by pinpointing the lowest detectable amount of metals in wastewater. As an added environmental benefit, this kind of study is able to show additional metal discharges and allows companies to put their attention on pollutants they may not otherwise see in traditional reporting. We are proud that the work we do has a direct impact on the health and vitality of not only the Gulf Coast economy but the environment as well, said Perkins Fendley, Hargrove Engineers + Constructors Mobile Office Leader. This award demonstrates our clients and Teammates commitment to finding ways to be efficient and effective in their processes to help businesses thrive while simultaneously helping the environment.
