California IGP Stormwater Compliance Services for Fence Manufacturing Facility
KERAMIDA’s Northern California stormwater professionals assisted a fence manufacturing facility with returning to Baseline status under California's Industrial General Permit (IGP). The California based facility weaves aluminum wire to make fence for sale and rentals. The outside storage of these products presented a pollutant source for Zinc (Zn), Aluminum (Al), and Iron (Fe).
Beginning in October 2014, KERAMIDA’s professionals worked to improve the manufacturing facility’s storm water compliance efforts through regularly implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs), treating storm water discharge, and storing both raw and finished materials off the ground. These combined efforts have greatly improved the facility’s sampling results. The facility is now in Baseline for six (6) out of their nine (9) parameters, and are expected to return to Baseline for two more parameters once their Level 2 Technical Report is submitted in June of 2019. This facility is an excellent example of how effective BMPs along with a comprehensive storm water compliance program and team can drastically improve sampling results.
The initial investment of money, time, and labor into the storm water management program was certainly worthwhile for the facility, as their storm water compliance costs will decrease in the thousands once they finish their return to Baseline for all parameters.
