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.

Environmental Compliance & Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

by Dennis

We discuss if Phase I ESA's include environmental compliance reports.

Many of our customers call us asking about 'environmental due diligence', and explain they're not entirely sure what they need, or are even asking to purchase. The issue is, environmental due diligence can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people.

What can I discharge with a NPDES stormwater permit?

My Environmental Program Just Passed - with a D-!

by Dennis

We explain why having an environmental program that just "passes" isn't good enough anymore.

Remember back in college, when you could pass a class with a D? You could skip class, shirk out on responsibilities like studying, and instead focus on having a good time? When it came time for class you had that professor who you got along well with who always cut you a lot of slack and let you put in minimum effort to pass their class. Did you end up learning anything? Probably not. But who cares, you passed, got to live your own version of Animal House, and had a blast, right?!
