You’ve come to the right place if your business is energy.

In 1990, permitting regulations were developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Among them, The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulates the stormwater discharge activities of Energy and Power Generation Facilities under Sector O.

A variety of BMP options may be applicable to minimize or eliminate the presence of pollutants in stormwater discharges from steam electric generating facilities, including coal handling areas. You may be required to implement engineered structures that treat stormwater runoff and/or mitigate the effects of increased stormwater runoff peak rate, volume, and velocity.

Whatever the nature of your business, and the activities you engage in to run your business, you are at risk of releasing contaminants such as TSS, organics and heavy metals into the watershed. You need to stay in compliance. We can help you navigate these regulations. We get it and we have solutions.
