Clean Air Program
Clean Air Essential for Healthy Environment
Just like pure water, clean air is also vital to a healthy environment. All it takes to ensure we have clean air for our region is a lot of knowledge and some initiative.
For many years, SAWS has supported efforts to reduce air pollution in the Alamo Region to preserve our natural resources. Some of the measures taken by SAWS to reduce air pollution include:
- Use of compact fluorescent lamps
- Utilizing the computer sleep mode
- Water conservation programs to reduce energy consumption and electronic bill payment
- Employee bus pass program
- Issuance of Air Quality Health Alerts
- Air quality education and workshops
- Displaying AQHA banners
- Participation in Walk & Roll events
