Launched in June of 1998 and leaving us flushed with excitement, the Manufacturing Group partners with the Santa Clara Valley Water District, City of San Jose and the San Jose/Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce to spearhead our “Slow the Flow & Save the Bay” Campaign. The unusual education effort is an in-house employee education campaign initially launched at 75 Valley companies, to help reduce wastewater releases into the San Francisco Bay. The effort will help protect the environment for two endangered species, and protect the economic health of the region by meeting regional limits without costly and controversial caps. Since more than 70 percent of all wastewater flowing to the Bay in 1998 came from residences, the campaign focuses on what individuals can do to reduce water use.
