Organization Narrative

The Pollution Prevention Institute works with business, industry, and municipalities to reduce pollution at its source of generation. PPI provides assistance in identifying ways to eliminate or reduce pollution before it is generated by changing working materials, practices, or technology. PPI has developed water quality self assessment tools for the ag service industry; RV parks and campgrounds; vet clinics and fairgrounds; and for those who clean parking lots. These tools provide suggestions for best management practices. PPI has worked with educating private citizens on pollution prevention through the Home*A*Syst program. Home*A*Syst is a confidential, self-assessment program citizens can use to evaluate their home and property for pollution and health risks and learn how to minimize those risks. Tools are found at www.sbeap.org.
