HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (July 14, 2016) – Hilton Head Public Service District (PSD) is a charter member of the Partnership for Clean Water, a voluntary program launched this year to optimize wastewater treatment facility operations. The partnership includes self-assessment and peer review in areas such as plant operations, treated wastewater quality, and energy efficiency. It was developed by the American Water Works Association (AWWA).
“Our strategic goals involve continual attention to facility optimization and efficiency,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi. “The Partnership for Clean Water gives us an opportunity to evaluate our operations and identify areas to improve on an ongoing basis.”
The PSD already is a member of the AWWA/U.S. EPA’s parallel program, the Partnership for Safe Water, aimed at the optimization of tap water quality and water distribution systems. The PSD is one of 17 utilities in South Carolina that belong to the Partnership for Safe Water.
Hilton Head PSD provides water, wastewater treatment, and recycled water services to 18,000 customers in the north- and mid-island areas of Hilton Head Island. It operates a wastewater treatment plant that annually recycles about 1 billion gallons of treated wastewater into recycled water that is used for golf course irrigation and wetlands nourishment on the island.
