Commitment to the Environment and Safety
Solaris Water works to maintain trust from our customers, employees, landowners and the local communities in which we operate. We are committed to protecting the environment in our area of operations and take climate risk and corporate responsibility seriously. We also prioritize a safety-first culture, provide a safe workplace for our employees, and respect and encourage community engagement. Our EHS management system is aligned with ISO 14001 and 45001, and we have integrated applicable ISO programs and practices, including the “Plan-Do-Check-Adjust” continuous improvement cycle.
- Implemented a comprehensive environmental management strategy. Our actions include undertaking baseline ecological studies before building and operating in any location to ensure protection of endangered species habitat, ecologically sensitive areas and historic cultural locations, as well as compliance with all applicable regulations.
- Constantly identify opportunities to reduce emissions, such as implementing a natural gas-powered microgrid to replace diesel generators and developing pipeline infrastructure to eliminate transporting produced water product by truck.
- Developed a proactive program for spill management and leak detection and repair that uses technology-enhanced systems, including 24/7 monitoring programs. The overall program includes employee training and oversight, best practices for material selection and construction of primary and secondary containment systems.
