Patriot Environmental Services and Patriot WasteWater Honored with Industry Award from the California Water Environmental Association
Feb 26, 2019
Patriot Environmental Services (Patriot) and our Patriot WasteWater (PWW) facility in Orange, California have been awarded 2018’s Facility of the Year in the Small Industry category by the California Water Environmental Association (CWEA).
This award publicly recognizes industrial facilities with an exemplary commitment to wastewater management and protection. Facilities with a demonstrated, long-term record of exceeding environmental standards are nominated by California regulatory agencies and the winning facility is selected based on a thorough audit and inspection process.
Patriot WasteWater has operated the industrial waste water disposal facility in Orange since 2015, and has established a sterling safety and compliance record with no OSHA recordable incidents or notices of violation under strict Orange County Sanitation District regulatory requirements.
Recognized for its knowledgeable and committed environmental staff, disciplined compliance emphasis, and comprehensive efforts to reduce or reuse waste materials, PWW provides an example of how a joint commitment from private companies, the commercial marketplace, and public regulatory agencies can lead to effective waste management practices that yield excellent results.
“At Patriot WasteWater, our focus is on compliance and proper treatment of industrial wastewater. Our clients depend on Patriot for environmental solutions, from cradle to grave, and the addition of our Orange facility in 2015 allowed us to do just that,” says Josh Teves, Patriot’s Vice President in charge of its waste management programs.
Teves continues, “I’m proud of our staff’s continued commitment to environmental compliance standards, and the service we deliver to both our clients and the community as a whole. It’s an honor to be nominated by our regulator and recognized with this award by our peers in the wastewater community.”
This award is a great reflection on the dedication and capability of our total team to live up to our goal of being the best full service, vertically integrated environmental services company in the western US,” says Brian Johnson, Patriot’s CEO. Johnson adds, “Our people are the best, and it’s fantastic to see them rewarded for their efforts by CWEA.”
The wastewater treatment industry has grown dramatically in California as drought and population growth have fueled the need to treat industrial wastes with the intent of ultimately returning the water to beneficial use. With Orange County leading the charge for public beneficial water reuse on a regional scale, Patriot’s Orange facility plays a key role as an industrial pre-treatment facility in the area.
