Water Permitting

Clean Water Act (CWA) compliance — specifically National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting under Section 402 and the national pretreatment program at Section 307(b) — is both challenging and complex. EnSafe can help manage polluted storm water runoff, direct and indirect discharges of industrial wastewaters, and other compliance issues that can create large fines and image problems. EnSafe’s storm water engineering solutions help our customers achieve and maintain compliance. EnSafe’s wastewater and storm water compliance group consistently applies its experience and expertise to ensure ongoing compliance and bring value to your business.

Most storm water discharges are considered point sources that may require permits before they can be discharged. Wastewater treatment plants also have NPDES permits; therefore, certain dischargers to municipal wastewater systems must acquire agreements and permits with those plants. This permitting mechanism is designed to prevent storm water runoff from washing harmful pollutants into local surface waters such as streams, rivers, lakes, or coastal waters.

A key CWA compliance requirement is oil pollution, prevention, and response. EnSafe specialists are dedicated to assisting clients with Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure and Facility Response Planning. From working on small industrial facilities to acting as controller/evaluators on Spills of National Significance, EnSafe has the experience to ensure a world-class planning and consideration for your facility’s emergency preparedness and response practices that include oil and hazardous substances.
