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 & working 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 of 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.

4 EASIEST ways to get better stormwater samples from your stormwater outfall discharge point.

by Chris

 

We explain how you can get better stormwater samples from our stormwater outfall.

For anyone out there that works at or operates an industrial facility, chances are you have (or need!) an NPDES permit. Might be for stormwater, might be for a commingled discharge, but the point is most operations have some sort of permit they need to stay in compliance with. Even more to the point, you probably have to sample stormwater leaving your site and get it tested.

What can I discharge with a NPDES stormwater permit?

by Chris

Learn what you can and can't discharge with an NPDES stormwater permit.

Many of our clients are covered by some sort of NPDES permit at their facility. Throughout the years we've heard from them, and others from all over the US that the language in their permit is confusing, or that regulators have given conflicting or incorrect information, so they turn to us for help. It makes sense since NPDES stormwater permits can be weighed down in regulatory language that often comes across as gibberish. Some states have a specific permit for specific industries, some state's permits are easy to handle, while other permits are downright archaic and confusing.

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.

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.
