WASHINGTON --Thirty-six wood, pulp and paper facilities have reduced their collective water use by more than 1.1 billion gallons as a result of their memberships in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Environmental Performance Track program, according to the latest data available from the EPA.

Performance Track is a partnership that recognizes top environmental performance among participating U.S. facilities of all types, sizes and complexity, public and private. Currently, the program has about 400 members and welcomes all qualifying facilities. For more information on Performance Track and a full list of its members, visit www.epa.gov/performancetrack
