SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia Ports Authority won an EPA Award Friday.

The director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the acting regional administrator for the EPA's southeast region visited the Port of Savannah Friday to present the award for environmental stewardship.

"For us, it's a chance for us to say we are more than just some people think of us as a regulatory agency," said Regional Administrator for the EPA's southeast region Stan Meiburg. "That role is very important, but one of our most important roles is to promote and build collaborations with communities all across the southeast and this is a tremendous opportunity to do that."

Meiburg said the Georgia Port Authority is using cutting edge technology to help reduce pollution.
