The restructuring work completed last year at its Springettsbury Township campus has earned Harley-Davidson a Pennsylvania Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence.
To be eligible, applicants must have completed projects between Aug. 1, 2011 and July 31, 2012 that promoted environmental stewardship and economic development in the state.
When Harley revamped its west campus, work included removing numerous old buildings, structures and contamination; closing waste disposal areas; providing access for future utilities and storm water discharge; negotiating an environmental covenant to protect future users; providing guidance for soil management and more, according to a company press release.
"Our ultimate goal was to leave the site in a better condition than it was when originally purchased," Sharon Fisher, environmental manager for Harley's local operations, said in a company statement.
Harley will be presented with the award Wednesday, April 17, at a ceremony in Harrisburg hosted by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.
