Regulatory Environmental Compliance Services
Keeping track of all the varied and changing environmental regulations, agencies, and requirements may not be part of your day-to-day job, but it is a critical part of our job - providing solutions to our clients' environmental problems. When you face issues related to regulatory compliance, it makes sense to call in experts like Lindmark Engineering. Let us deal with the agencies, the laws, the forms, the regulations, and the permits. We have the know-how to handle all the details of regulatory compliance efficiently, which lets you concentrate on doing just what you do best - your own job. Our regulatory compliance services entail environmental audits, spill prevention and contingency planning and storm water monitoring compliance.
Lindmark Engineering conducts environmental audits to assist our clients in complying with regulatory requirements. To facilitate data gathering, we develop special questionnaires and procedural checklists that address the key areas covered by agency inspections. Our questionnaires are tailored to the individual client, based on site-specific information. We examine existing and proposed regulations, evaluating their likely impact on current or future practices in the client's business. Then we use the results of the environmental audit to prepare recommendations, which may include any changes in management practices or controls that might be necessary to ensure regulatory compliance now and in the future.
Spill prevention & contingency planning
One common result of an environmental audit is a recommendation for spill prevention and contingency planning. Actually, many facilities can benefit from such planning because implementation costs, compared to the specter of expensive cleanups in the future, tend to be relatively low. An additional benefit of implementing effective procedures for spill prevention and contingency planning is often improved work efficiency and higher morale among a facility's staff.
Some general examples of spill prevention measures we have implemented include piping retrofits, containment walls, rainwater diversion systems, and process modifications.
Storm water monitoring compliance programs
The need for storm water monitoring as a regulatory program started on November 16, 1990 when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a regulation requiring National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits for discharges of storm water from certain point sources.
To assist our clients in compliance, we are capable of developing storm water monitoring programs, performing storm water sampling, training client personnel, preparing reports, and providing professional certification.
