Robert Kerr, director, Pollution Prevention Assistance Division (P2AD), praised Mount Vernon as an industry leader in pollution source prevention. Model level P3 facilities such as Mount Vernon have incorporated pollution prevention into daily business activities and have promoted pollution prevention within the industry, with vendors and customers, and within the community, he said.Mount Vernons denim mill in Trion has achieved significant reductions in fresh water usage and reductions of 500,000 gallons per day of wastewater discharge.
