Snowmelt & Stormwater Samples

by Chris

Learn when you can use melting snow, or snowmelt, as a stormwater sample.

Living in New Jersey, I've gotten used to cold winters. Snow, nor'easters, the sun setting early, you name it. It's just a fact of life living here in the North East. One thing that rings true for my clients here in New Jersey, over in Pennsylvania, up in New York, and all throughout the region is that when it gets cold out, certain aspects of the business change.

One thing that many clients have to deal with is frozen water, which can be an issue when it comes to dealing with NPDES stormwater permits. Pipes get clogged with ice, the ground gets covered in snow, and life under your stormwater permit can get pretty tricky.

by Dennis

We discuss how banks, Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, and RMA are related.

For anyone getting a Phase I ESA because a "banks says so", there are undoubtedly a ton of questions.

TRI Reporting & Community Right-to-Know Reporting in North Carolina

by Chris

Information on Tier II Community Right to Know Reporting & TRI Reporting in North Carolina.

Both Tier II Community Right-to-Know Reporting and TRI Reporting can be confusing. From what we've heard customers of ours tell us, there are so many aspects of reporting that sound similar or seem similar, that it's hard to keep track of them.

The issue is, when it comes to EPCRA Reporting, there's never been a time where you're under the microscope more than you are now. From 3rd party environmental groups getting aggressive, the cash-strapped governmental agencies cracking the whip, your operation needs to be 100% on top of these regulations, no matter what.

TMDLs, 303(d) Impaired Waters, & NPDES Stormwater Permits

by Doug

We explain what TMDL, 303(d) Impaired Waters, and YOUR stormwater permit have in common!

I have an accountant because when I look at the tax code it's like reading gibberish. A lot of our clients hire us because when it comes to environmental regulations, they can also seem like gibberish sometimes.
