Water Wellness

Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. just launched a new wellness program, WATER WELLNESS, to encourage employees to increase their water intake and to promote hydration.  Employees who drink 48 fluid ounces 5 days a week successfully complete the program, and those who drink 64 fluid ounces qualify to win FOUR TICKETS TO SEE THE INDY COLTS!  Pure water, 100% fruit juice and zero calorie caffeine free flavored water count towards the total goal.  Mulzer wants employees to be excited about the program, but advises employees not to exceed 96 fluid ounces in a day.

There are alot of great reasons to increase your water intake.

  1. Drinking water supports weight loss.  Thirst can be mistaken for hunger.  Next time you are hungry, drink a glass of water and it may satisfy your need for food.
  2. Water protects body organs and tissues.
  3. Water regulates our body temperatures adn lubricates our joints.

Good luck to all of our Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. employee participants!

Fulton Ave. Overpass

If you’ve traveled on the Lloyd Expressway between Fulton Avenue and the MLK Blvd. exit, you know first hand that something major is happening to the expressway.  Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. has already supplied over 150,000 ton of aggregate to this project, which is being ran by Walsh.  This much needed improvement will help streamline traffic in and out of the Downtown Evansville area, adding on and off ramps and elevating the expressway.
