On March 25, 2015, Martin Ecosystems received an Environmental Leadership Program Award from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality. The award was in the small business category for Community Environmental Outreach Project. It showcased the Isle de Jean Charles Floating Island projects completed in 2011 and 2013. This is second ELP award that Martin Ecosystems has won. The previous was for the Elayn Hunt Correctional Wastewater Floating Island project.
“The Environmental Leadership Program recognizes voluntary pollution reductions by government, schools, businesses and community groups in Louisiana. Award winners have gone above and beyond regulation to combat pollution, spearhead community outreach efforts, or present educational programs that make a positive difference in the quality of Louisiana’s environment,” DEQ Secretary Peggy Hatch said.
