Common-sense stormwater management, Recycling Today, Nov. 2016

Every state in the country has different permits to enforce the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Water Act (CWA). Several states even have specific permits assigned to industry sectors. More recently some states are indicating that future inspections will be more detailed. In particular, the handling of miscellaneous, non-stormwater liquids, as well as handling and controlling exposure to stormwater by the metals themselves, were noted as critical areas of emphasis.

The article discusses  with proper planning, most facilities can find a way to avoid fines and lawsuits. Implementing one of the alternatives could even reposition your operation as a safe, clean and respected industry leader that values the environment, the local economy, and community.
