I spend a lot of my time out in the field, working with clients on a 1-on-1 basis, helping them understand the ins-and-outs of their permits, approvals, and the laws and regulations they have to follow. From in the field training, to making training videos for clients and customers, to providing inspection & testing services in the field, I love providing my clients easy-to-understand, hassle-free instructions. Working at Resource Management Associates allows me to help build upon my formal education and training as a GIS Specialist, and supplement it by continually building a profound level of understanding environmental regulations. At the end of the day this means that I can break down the information you need to know in an easy manner, and let you know what sort of implications regulations are going to have on your facility. Outside of work I’m considered somewhat of a nature buff. I like hiking, gardening, surfing, and spend a lot of time working on my beehives.

What are stormwater sample holding times?

by Chris

Confused about stormwater sample holding times?

When it comes to taking stormwater samples used for testing, monitoring, or to be analyzed by a lab, many people out there aren't aware of the various instructions that must be followed. One of the most common rules that must be followed involves what are called "holding times" for stormwater samples. This concept trips a lot of people up. If you're unaware of what holding times are, trust me, you're not alone. Many people who have NPDES permits, or any other type of stormwater or process water discharge permit need to make sure they understand what holding times, otherwise they risk having invalid samples or running into trouble.
