Comprehensive Regulatory Assistance for Aerospace Materials Supplier

Every new year brings a new round of reporting. There are so many requirements and constant changes to these requirements to keep track of. Like this Client, many of our clients utilize our compliance assistance services annually so that our experts can step in and make the process smoother. W&M provides ongoing assistance to this aerospace materials supplier with its annual environmental reporting requirements and other environmental compliance related tasks for their Arlington, Texas facilty Site each year.



Avoiding Pitfalls in Environmental Reporting

We at W&M, somewhat affectionately, refer to the time period of January 1 – July 1 as “Reporting Season” due to the myriad of compliance deadlines all crammed into that timeframe.  As you will recall, it all begins on March 1 with the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Tier II reporting and Annual Waste Summary (AWS) reporting deadline.  Shortly after is the March 31 deadline for Air Emissions Inventory Reporting (AEIR) and the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) annual reporting.  As you would expect, there are a number of pitfalls that you will want to avoid when completing your reporting.  We’ll discuss more during the January Webinar, but here are a few to get you started: Pitfall #1:  Quality of Information Not all information is created equal and not all information is good information.  When gathering data, it is important to be specific as

Compliance Assistance for Chemical Producer

W&M has been working with this chemical company since 2007, assisting with regulatory compliance, particularly Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWP3), Tier II and Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reporting, and waste handling and disposal.  Each year, W&M has helped at various Client Sites to provide support with stormwater (SWP3 inspections, best management practice (BMP) evaluation, spill cleanup procedures and cleanup material, pollution prevention and permit requirements), the preparation of Tier II and TRI reports for Client Sites, and has met more specific needs for each of the Sites.



On-going Annual Compliance Assistance

W&M has worked with this family of scrap metal facilities for approximately 9 years.  Scrap metal facilities are subject to Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Industrial Stormwater permit, as well as a handful of other environmental regulations ranging from Emergency Planning Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Tier II reporting, air permitting, Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC), and non-hazardous waste generation.  Each year, W&M assists their facilities with Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) assistance (inspections, best management practice (BMP)evaluation, analyzing data, annual reporting, etc.) and preparation of their Tier II reports, air permitting assistance and documentation (as needed), and technical assistance on various environmental projects throughout the year.





Brace yourself for March, it’s just around the corner.

For Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Managers or professionals, the new year brings a new outlook on your job, promises to yourself and your company, and the desire for improvement over the past year. Unfortunately, the new year also brings the crushing realization that March is just around the corner, almost taunting you for becoming cocky in November and December when few environmental reports are due to the State or EPA. March marks the beginning of the annual reporting deadlines. The reporting calendar begins with the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Tier II report and the Annual Waste Summary (AWS) due March 1st, and then you dive right into the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) Benchmark Monitoring (BM) reporting and Discharge Monitoring Report, and the Air Emissions Inventory Report (AEIR), all due on March 31.  Individually the reports are not overly difficult or time

It’s All About Who You Know and Knowing What To Look For

Let’s face it, during environmental reporting season, it seems like co-workers will intentionally walk halfway around your facility to avoid being sighted out your doorway.  The co-workers that normally stop by your office every other day or go to lunch with you are all of the sudden M.I.A.  The hint of Tier II, TRI, AEIR, or AWS talk sends them scrambling for the exits.  Information gathering for environmental reporting is time consuming but it doesn’t have to be scary or tedious. Before you dive headfirst into your data gathering, consider assembling a team of veteran coworkers from the various departments within your facility.  Some of the more valuable helpers we rely on are purchasers, maintenance managers, and line managers from each value stream.  Purchasers have access to a wealth of knowledge such as quantities of chemicals purchased, typical or average inventory, and which departments are ordering which chemicals.  Maintenance managers are typically
