Encouraging Environmental Excellence Committee

Projects and Improvements
PWSD sells re-purposed totes! Now selling for $25-50.
Keeping extra plastic out of landfills!
Local bee keepers will be using our land for honey production and cross pollination.
Approximately one-third of all the food Americans eat is directly or indirectly derived from honey bee pollination. Some crops pollinated are cucumbers, almonds, carrot seed, melons, apricots, cherries, pears, apples, prunes, plums, pluots, seed alfalfa, cantaloupe, seed onions, avocados, kiwi, blueberries, cranberries, etc.
Parker Water is committed to keeping recyclable materials out of Colorado landfills by heavily encouraging recycling and product reuse at all of our facilities. The E3 committee works to spread the word about how beneficial recycling is for our environment, and why recycling now will be important to the State of Colorado in years to come. PWSD weighs our recyclable materials every week and strives to ensure that the appropriate materials are making their way to recycling facilities
PWSD is now a proud Silver ELP member!
The Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) is the Colorado statewide environmental recognition and reward program which offers benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement.
