Ensuring Compliance With Hazardous Waste, Wastewater, Air, and Stormwater Regulatory Requirements
- Wastewater treatment system evaluation
- Weekly operation and maintenance of treatment system
- Stormwater management
- SB 14 hazardous waste source reduction and management
- Air quality management and reporting
EEC Environmental (EEC) was retained by an aerospace firm to assist in all aspects of environmental regulatory compliance including hazardous waste, wastewater, air, and stormwater.
During a recent transition in staff at the aerospace firm, EEC assumed the role of the in-house Air Quality Manager and was in charge of managing all air permits issued by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Air quality management duties included permit renewal, annual reporting, and internal reporting in order to avoid Title V permit triggers.
For wastewater support, EEC continues to perform, on an annual basis, all required activities in order to evaluate and troubleshoot the wastewater treatment system. The evaluation is used to identify and implement any required corrective actions. In addition, EEC provides as-needed training to the wastewater treatment operators.
By March of each year, EEC prepares a wastewater treatment system evaluation report. In order to maintain the optimal performance of the wastewater treatment system, EEC performs weekly monitoring, cleaning, and calibrating of the pH and oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) sensors located in the chrome reduction tank, neutralization tanks, and in the v-notch weir of the wastewater pretreatment system.
EEC has also provided engineering services to assess approximately 30 hazardous waste tanks in accordance with Title 22 requirements and continues to assist with hazardous material and hazardous waste management. EEC has prepared and continues to maintain Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans (SPCC). Lastly, EEC provides technical and regulatory advice on new technologies and on treatment and abatement strategies.
