InterAct Leads Industrial Storm Water Permitting Effort for a Large Operator in California

InterAct is the lead in developing and implementing a strategic plan to address the new General Permit for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities (IGP) for a major oil and gas exploration and production company with locations throughout California. InterAct has developed a fast, cost-effective method of analysis that can significantly reduce compliance costs. Incorporating the use of GIS and Google Earth to perform preliminary screening of oil and gas fields that are covered by the new regulation, InterAct will be able to drastically cut costs for the client while providing them with the same information as a site visit. With this method InterAct can quickly determine the locations where compliance is significantly reduced, and the more complex permit application such as Notice of Intent (NOI) is not necessary, and a No-Exposure Certification (NEC) or a Notice of Non-Applicability (NONA) can be demonstrated.

InterAct’s technical experts in storm water and water resources have extensive experience developing facility storm water pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs) and developing storm water management activities. If your facility is new to the IGP or needs to re-certify, InterAct can determine if your facility can be exempted from the permit or qualifies for a No-Exposure Certification.  If permit coverage is required, InterAct can update your existing Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) or develop a new SWPPP with Best Management Practices (BMPs) appropriate to your site and a simplified monitoring plan that takes advantage of the reductions offered in the IGP. InterAct provides low cost on-site or online training for staff responsible for permit implementation. Training covers storm water sampling, BMP implementation and SMARTS reporting.
