Published January 26, 2016

CINCINNATI (January 25, 2016) - Pilot Chemical Company announced today it has joined a passionate group of environmental stewards as a new member of the Mill Creek Watershed Council of Communities.

This membership will contribute to the environmental and economic health of the 166-square mile watershed, and further Pilot’s commitment to protecting the environment, as well as the safety of its employees and the communities in which it operates.

“We are proud and excited to officially take part in the Mill Creek Watershed Council,” said Pam Butcher, Pilot’s president and CEO. “Pilot Chemical strongly believes in protecting and improving our natural resources, including one of Greater Cincinnati’s largest shared water resources.”

The Mill Creek runs 28 miles, from Liberty Township through 34 communities to the Ohio River. Over the past two centuries, urbanization and development have polluted the drainage basin. The Council and its members are dedicated to restoring the Mill Creek back to a vibrant ecosystem through water quality and wildlife habitat improvement, flood damage reduction and recreational amenities like birding, fishing and hiking.

Since its start in 1952, Pilot Chemical has been committed to continuously improving its environmental impact. In addition to the Mill Creek Watershed Council, Pilot is also an active member of ChemStewards® and is pursuing a Responsible Care® certification.
