The mission of the Goleta Sanitary District is to protect public health and the environment. As such we have sponsored the Green Business Program of Santa Barbara County for many years. In 2018, the Governing Board decided to become one of the region’s first public utilities certified as a green business. The District is in the process of completing the certification process and plans to meet all program requirements by fall 2018. Some of these steps include installing all low flow showers, toilets and faucets, using post-consumer paper products for all business interactions, tracking and posting of monthly electricity bills for all staff, and creating a commuter incentive program. The certification will be good for three years. The green business program reflects a core value of the District and demonstrates our commitment to be good stewards of our environment.
