Years ago, when talk about our environment began to surface, George and I took a good hard look at what we could do to improve our practices. We needed to keep the phosphorus levels in our waste water down to prevent destruction of the environment in the local waterways. We pumped all waste water around to a flat area between and beyond The Whistle Stop and The Nest. We chose an enviro tech which used bacteria rather than chemicals and we chose citrus, environmentally friendly cleaning products and we urged our guests to reuse their towels to reduce the amount of waste water and contamination.
