The Springfield Environmental Services Department dedicated this new Clean Water Operations building on Earth Day 2016. This 12,000 sf building is the new home of the clean water services division, including several of its programs including industrial pre-treatment, our fats, oils, and grease or FOG program, and our private server repair program. The new building was constructed to LEED Silver specifications, which includes a rooftop rain water harvesting system feeding a 2,900 gallon cistern, pervious pavement, light shelves, and a rain garden.
“Our sanitary sewer collections system is one of Springfield’s most important and largest assets, and this new facility allows us to expand out staffing…to provide the best operations and maintenance of that critical facility.”
Assistant Director Erin Kemper
