STORM WATER UPDATE
Do you know the extent and reporting requirements for your storm water discharges?
If not, then ASTI Environmental can help.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program regulates the discharge of pollutants from point sources to waters of the United States. Storm water from industrial facilities with manufacturing, processing or raw material storage operations could be regulated by the NPDES permit program. If your site discharges storm water to a municipal storm water system or open channel your site may require an NPDES permit.
ASTI Environmental will perform a site visit to determine if your facility requires an NPDES permit. ASTI Environmental can complete the permitting process from preparation of the Notice of Intent to Discharge Storm Water Associated with Industrial Activity through implementation of the site specific Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) Plan.
If your facility has total storage capacity of 1,320 gallons of oils and fuels, USEPA regulations require a site specific Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan. Michigan Part 5 rules regarding Spillage of Oil and Polluting Materials require a Pollutant Incident Prevention (PIP) Plan if you store more than 2,200 pounds of polluting material indoors. For example, indoor storage of more than 450 gallons of antifreeze would require a plan to be in place.
ASTI Environmental has provided environmental compliance services that include preparation of permit applications, plan review and on-site training for facilities with Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan, Pollution Incident Prevention Plan (PIPP), and Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) in 79 Counties of Michigan since 1985.
