At the ACUA we take our responsibility to our customers, neighbors and the environment as a matter of utmost importance.
On occasion, we are faced with conflicting priorities and one of these is the use of odor mitigating chemicals in the collection system. The problem is how to manage the sewer collection system and at the same time ensure a safe and pleasant (air quality) environment for people that live, travel or recreate near the collection system.
Until recently, the solution has been the use of expensive and potentially hazardous chemicals but as an environmental leader the ACUA continues to look for new technologies and innovations. BioAir Solutions is a provider of innovative and industry leading vapor phase odor control equipment with a focus on the environment.
By installing the EcoPure® Mini and EcoFilter® systems at our lift stations, we have been able to eliminate the use of chemicals at these locations with a significant savings on operating cost and meet our goal of being better stewards to the environment.
Having worked with the BioAir team for several years, we have been impressed by their knowledge and helpfulness in helping us address the issues of odor mitigation in an ecological and environmentally friendly way. They continue to provide assistance and support — it is good to know that some companies stick around after the sale is made!
The bottom line for us is equipment that works, at a reasonable price and that is friendly to the environment — to that end, we fully endorse BioAir as a company and their equipment for odor control.
