INDUSTRIAL GENERAL PERMIT TRAINING SEMINAR AT THE OCEANSIDE PUBLIC LIBRARY ON AUGUST 20, 2014 FROM 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM
You are cordially invited to join us for a free information packed seminar on the newly released NPDES Permit for the Discharge of Storm Water Associated with Industrial Activities also known as the Industrial General Permit (Industrial Permit).
Please see the invitation request attached and RSVP by July 31, 2014 toDavid.Renfrew@altaenviron.com.
The new Industrial Permit was adopted on April 1, 2014 and will replace the requirements of the previous Permit. The final version of the Permit includes significant changes in the regulation of storm water discharges from industrial facilities. The Industrial Permit requires industrial facilities that fall under specific standard industrial classification (SIC) codes to comply with new requirements by July 1, 2015. Do you know if your SIC code falls under this Permit? If not, please contact me at David.Renfrew@altaenviron.com or 760-908-5749.
The permit is more complex and has increased requirements for compliance. We are advising our clients and customers to take steps now to bring storm water pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs), best management practices (BMPs), employee training, and storm water management into compliance by July 1, 2015. Additionally, “Light Industrial” facilities formerly exempt from this regulation will need to develop plans for compliance with the new Permit. Considerably more facility-specific information will be publically available than ever before presenting a risk for third-party lawsuits.
With decades of experience, we understand the importance of efficient and effective compliance for your business. As requirements and enforcement have increased, Alta has taken steps towards having the most educated and experienced staff in the industry. Our experts are Certified Professionals in Storm Water Quality (CPSWQ), Qualified SWPPP Practitioners (QSP), and Qualified SWPPP Developers (QSD). Our experts have an excellent rapport with the regulators and enforcement authorities. Our mission is to help keep your operation in compliance with the extensive record keeping, reporting, certification, and training requirements as well as Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) preparation or revision and implementation. Through strategic use of sound science, we prepare and implement compliance monitoring to be cost effective as well as manage and limit your risk. Once again, please RSVP by July 31, 2014 to David.Renfrew@altaenviron.com or via phone (760) 908-5749 if you need any additional information. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
