United Rock Products Wins 2009 Environmental Award

January 4, 2010

United Rock Products was recognized by the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce for Water Conservation during its 2009 Environmental Awards and Green Business Expo.

United Rock Products received the Water Conservation Award for the installation of its Fines Recovery System, also known as, a belt press. Since the implementation of the belt press, United Rock Products was able to reduce its water usage by the hundreds of acre feet and has allowed them to shut down their water pumps. With the reduction in water usage, the added benefit of having to purchase less water was achieved and could then be given back to the surrounding communities in the San Gabriel Valley. United Rock Products ultimate goal is to recycle all of its water.
