WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Explore the ways your facility can prevent spills & subsequent stormwater pollution. Learn to implement BMPs, avoid hefty EPA fines and prevent damage to the environment while keeping workers safe through this informative webinar.



Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a $79,000 fine against a company in West Virginia. The EPA alleges that the company violated its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit and the Clean Water Act by exceeding effluent limits, discharging unauthorized stormwater, and failing to implement or maintain a stormwater pollution prevention plan that the permit requires.

Industrial chemical spills that find their way outdoors can pose serious risks to both human health and the environment, especially if the spill comes in contact with stormwater. Not only are these spills disastrous for the environment, but as we can see from the case above, they can also negatively impact your company's bottom line.

Fortunately, there are numerous ways your facility can prevent spills and subsequent stormwater pollution. By implementing the Best Management Practices (BMPs) discussed in this webinar, you can avoid hefty EPA fines and prevent damage to the environment while keeping workers safe.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify spill risk areas and potential sources of stormwater pollution at their facility site,
  • Determine which BMPs will be most effective at their facility for preventing spills,
  • Recognize the difference between structural and nonstructural BMPs, and
  • Determine how to respond if a spill does occur at their site and what the reporting obligations are.
