Wyoming DEQ Storm Water Program Coordinator Barbara Sahl presented the 2007 Construction Storm Water Recognition Award for Industrial Construction Activities at the companies' joint monthly safety meeting in Sheridan on April 15, 2008. The DEQ recognized Huber and Baker for their consistency and innovation in complying with Wyoming Water Quality Rules and Regulations. Most notable was the advanced technologies implemented to enhance efficiency and promote accurate data retrieval.

"The DEQ is impressed with the exceptional nature and organization of the companies' permit records and inspection reports, as well as the diligent monitoring of the diverse control measures and procedures employed," said Jim Eisenhauer, DEQ inspection program coordinator. "It was apparent that the personnel of Huber and Baker are serious about storm water management and professional in their application of their environmental program."

"The DEQ Award exemplifies the proactive partnership that Huber and Baker have established over many years of working together for a common goal," said Dennis Higgins, operations manager for Baker Energy's Northern Business Unit. "Both companies are fully committed to ensuring that we consider the environment in our planning and make every possible effort to minimize the effect of our operational footprint."

Jay Stewart, director of environmental, health, safety and compliance for Huber, agrees. "Our approach to business focuses on such principles as environmental stewardship and respect for people," he said. "It is gratifying to receive recognition from the DEQ for the commitment Huber and Baker have made to protecting water quality."

The Wyoming DEQ began the program last year and presented awards to both an industrial and a residential construction project. DEQ inspectors or public persons nominate companies that they feel exhibit excellence in storm water management. Once nominated, DEQ regulatory inspectors conduct field inspections and submit their recommendations to the DEQ.
