Environmental Compliance Assurance Relationship With Glass Manufacturing Facilities

August Mack began a working relationship with an Ohio-based glass manufacturing company providing environmental compliance support services. Initial projects involved the completion of air emission inventories and a ventilation survey at their main facility. August Mack was later retained to provide continued environmental compliance assistance by implementing our Compliance Assurance Program (eCAP®).

Using our eCAP® program, routine site inspections of the client’s facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania are conducted. The purpose of these inspections is to assess and monitor compliance with all state, federal, and local environmental regulatory programs, review the day-to-day data collection activities and weekly inspection requirements, as well as evaluate the need to update environmental plans. Specific regulatory programs include the Clean Air Act (CAA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Clean Water Act (CWA), chemical management and reporting, and specialty pollutants. Additionally, we  prepare and submit all of the regulatory reports and pollution prevention plans required for each facility.  These plans and reports can include Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and associated Annual & Discharge Monitoring Reports, Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plans and associated spill reports, and the annual Hazardous Chemical Inventory (Tier II) reports. 

Along with the continued environmental compliance assistance, the client is provided with an account manager who provides 24-hour technical support as needed to assist with any spill response procedures and to assist with scheduled or unscheduled environmental regulatory inspections conducted by state and federal regulators.

In addition to the eCAP® program, August Mack has provided task specific services to support the client consisting of asbestos surveys, abatement oversight, and environmental due diligence.
