June 29, 2018 Hire Goats as New Staff

JS will announce that Ban-nan WWTP (Iwata City, Shizuoka Prefecture) that JS takes care of its O&M employs goats on weeding. Water Agency Inc. cooperates the goat project.
Ban-nan WWTP used to use gasoline-powered loan mowers. This time, the WWTP experimentally starts weeding for the area of 3,500 m2 with three goats from the end of June to the middle of December. The operation is expected to reduce CO2 emission derived from fossil fuel and reduce noise that loan mowers make. The weeding area is scheduled for its fourth train of treatment facilities.
The goats issued staff identity cards have another important mission that is working for gIwata Sewers Adventure Tourh annually held in Ban-nan WWTP. They will contribute to providing the event participants an opportunity to think about our environment.
