PepsiCo Wins Hearts, Minds, And The US Water Prize
The Clean Water America Alliance recently presented six organizations the 2012 US Water Prize in a ceremony attended by 300 US water leaders.
Frito-Lay North America was recognized for its corporate culture of water conservation and re-use to save water, energy and money. As one example, the Frito-Lay Casa Grande facility is reducing its water footprint by cleaning and re-using process water, leaving more for citizens and ecosystems in a thirsty region. A 700,000 gallon-per-day system recycles process water and treats it to drinking water standards for various uses within the plant, saving up to 100 million gallons of fresh water per year that would otherwise be withdrawn from the region’s aquifer.
U.S. government officials spoke at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., honoring the award winners.
