Monroe, OH, July 15, 2019 – Valicor Environmental Services (“Valicor”), one of North America’s largest providers of non-hazardous wastewater treatment services, has expanded its leading network of wastewater processing facilities through the acquisition of River Green (“River Green” or the “Company”).
River Green operates a premier centralized wastewater treatment (“CWT”) facility located in Louisville, KY. The Company currently has capacity to further expand its wastewater treatment operations and will enable Valicor to become one of the leading wastewater treatment providers in the region.
James Devlin, Valicor’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are extremely excited to add to Valicor’s leading network in Kentucky. Valicor continues to expand into additional geographies in order to better serve both new and existing customers.

Including the River Green acquisition, Valicor has increased its number of centralized wastewater treatment plants from five to twelve in twenty-four months and made substantial progress in building out a national footprint.
Norb Whitlock, Co-Owner and President of River Green, stated, “I’m excited as the Valicor team is the ideal partner for us. I’m confident that they will help accelerate the growth potential of the facility and to provide world-class service to our existing customers, while providing a bright future for our employees. I have been particularly impressed by their deep commitment to closing this acquisition with an eye towards the future.”
