Industrial Wastewater Consulting and Permitting

industry wastewater consultingTitan can provide environmental consulting in the areas of industrial wastewater, storm water and wetland permitting and compliance. Requirements of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations continue to change. This makes regulatory compliance within these areas critical.

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, authorized by the Clean Water Act, requires that industrial facilities that discharge into U.S. waters must have a permit. The NPDES has separate permitting programs for process wastewater and storm water. At Titan, we are experts in water discharge permitting. We can help with permit application preparation, water sampling, and development of electronic data systems for discharge monitoring reports.

The NPDES program requires industrial facilities covered by the multi-sector storm water permit to develop and implement a storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP). These plans include detailed information specific to each facility-(e.g., drainage maps, pollution prevention team members, possible sources of storm water pollution, etc.) as well as management,
employee training, and record keeping practices.

Spill Prevention and Countermeasure Control Plan Development and Management

Titan has the expertise and experience
to assist facility managers and administrators with the development and management of Spill Prevention and Countermeasure Control (SPCC) Plans.

Originally published as a provision to the Clean Water Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Oil Pollution Prevention regulation sets the requirements for prevention of,preparedness for, and response to oil discharges at specific non-transportation related facilities. To prevent oil from reaching navigable waters and adjoining shoreline (and to contain oil discharges), the regulation requires these facilities to develop and implement a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan. SPCC Plans ensure that facilities have in place containment and other controls that would prevent oil spills or mitigate their effects. EPA’s 40 CFR 112, outlines these regulations which establish procedures, methods, and equipment requirements for SPCC Plans.
