Improving the collection and effective treatment of sewage and wastewater is not only critical for a healthy environment, it’s also essential for public health.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that pursuant to a settlement modification with the agency and the U.S. Department of Justice, the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) has agreed to make major improvements and upgrades to the island’s sanitary collection system and wastewater treatment plants.

EPA claims the upgrades will allow the water utility to focus its resources on a reduced number of better-operated and more efficient facilities; meet certain revised schedules for specified wastewater infrastructure projects; and execute 17 new wastewater projects, which, on their own, are estimated to cost $534 million.

“This settlement modification is good news for the people that visit and live in Puerto Rico,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “Improving the collection and effective treatment of sewage and wastewater is not only critical for a healthy environment, it’s also essential for public health. Clean water also makes for better businesses and is vital for our tourism industry, which injects billions of dollars each year into the local economy.”

The environmental, health and safety professionals at Zimmetry have been working for decades to protect the environment. They offer testing, monitoring and consulting services to support wastewater, sewage, stormwater and drinking water programs in Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean. These resources can be an important short-term or long-term asset for water and wastewater utilities. Zimmetry also helps companies and institutions in their efforts to comply with environmental regulations which also protect the public and nature.
