EA Participates in Port of San Diego #ThatsMyBay Service Day
Hunt Valley, Maryland (26 November 2019)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that its employees continue to “walk-the-walk” as volunteers at environmental cleanup events as demonstrated most recently by their active participation in the Port of San Diego’s #ThatsMyBay Service Day on 7 November 2019.
While attending a meeting sponsored by the American Association of Port Authorities, EA professionals, Richard Price, PE, and Sam Whitin, CERP, spent a morning picking up trash during this cleanup day sponsored by the Port of San Diego. The pair met up with representatives of Ports throughout the United States to help clean up Pepper Park, which adjoins Sweetwater Channel.
“What a great opportunity to support the Port of San Diego in its efforts to serve as an environmental champion to ensure that the Bay remains a vibrant resource,” stated Richard Price, who manages EA’s Stormwater and Sustainability Practice throughout the Pacific. “The Port did a fantastic job of making it a fun day, while educating participants on how people can take actions to reduce their impact on the environment.”
“It is no surprise that our employees would willingly volunteer at such an event—it is a vibrant part of who we are as a company,” added Ian MacFarlane, EA’s President and CEO. “By removing trash, our employees contributed toward making the Bay safer for wildlife and humans, while improving water quality and protecting aquatic habitats. I am so proud of the many ways our employee-owners continue to ‘walk-the-walk’ here at EA.”
