Does your site require a permit?
A site may meet the conditions of “no exposure” exclusion. “No exposure” is defined by the EPA as “… all industrial materials and activities are protected by a storm resistant shelter to prevent exposure to rain, snow, snowmelt, and/or runoff. Industrial materials or activities include, but are not limited to, material handling equipment or activities, industrial machinery, raw materials, intermediate products, by-products, final products, and waste products.”
It may be possible for an industrial facility to apply for a “no exposure” certification and be excluded from the requirement to obtain an NPDES stormwater discharge permit.
The professional staff of Quest Consultants can assist clients with all requirements of NPDES stormwater discharge permits, including the following:
Preparation of “No Exposure” Certification Application Forms”
Preparation of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and Storm Water Pollution Control Plans (SWPCP).
