Project Description: 

As a subcontractor to Cook Environmental Services, Inc., ADH assisted in the evaluation and major revision of JM Enterprise’s Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) in order to come into compliance with a Notice of Violation and a Cleanup and Abatement Order for this 8-acre motor vehicle recycling yard.

Scope of Services: 

 

ADH provided the following services:

  • Review of the Notice of Violation and Cleanup and Abatement Order issued to the facility by the Regional Water Quality Control Board
  • Site inspections at each facility
  • Evaluation of current SWPPP and BMPs
  • Development of a relevant, up-to-date SWPPP which met the Statewide NPDES General Permit’s requirements
  • Assistance with the installation of erosion control devices at the facility prior to the rainy season

Facility and Regulations Review

Prior to site inspections, ADH staff members reviewed the State’s Notice of Violation and Cleanup and Abatement Order, the facility’s existing SWPPP and Storm Water Monitoring Plan, the NPDES General Permit for Discharges of Storm Water Associated with Industrial Activities (Order No. 97-03-DWQ), and other relevant documentation related to motor vehicle recycling yard BMPs.

Site Inspection

ADH personnel conducted a site visit at the facility for the following tasks:

  • Introductory guided tours of the facility
  • Independent walk-through inspections of vehicle and parts storage areas, vehicle draining/dismantling and crushing areas, hazardous waste storage area, and vehicle repair shop
  • Photo documentation
  • Thorough evaluations of existing BMPs
  • Identification of additional BMPs requiring implementation
  • Inspection and evaluation of facility’s storm water treatment system

Reporting

ADH prepared a significant revision to the existing SWPPP and Storm Water Monitoring Plan to ensure compliance with the General Permit, Notice of Violation, and Cleanup and Abatement Order. Emphasis was placed on clearly conveying the regulatory basis and rational for the document, and on its readability so that it will be a valuable resource for all facility staff members.
