Recycling Facility Stormwater Review

August Mack was contracted to review the existing stormwater compliance management program at six scrap recycling centers and identify areas of improvement.    Following a review of each facility’s Notice of Intent, August Mack performed an inspection of each facility to determine if outfalls identified in past inspections continued to meet the regulatory definition of an outfall, as well as to locate any new or previously unidentified outfalls. During this process, current operation processes and storage materials for drainage areas were examined. The inspections also aimed to evaluate if any outfalls at each site qualified as “representative” of the quality of the stormwater for pollutant monitoring purposes.  

Throughout the process, August Mack located several unidentified outfalls and all drainage locations for each site. The team also corrected the classification of outfalls that had been previously determined to be representative or non-representative in order to accurately reflect their current status. After each inspection, August Mack compiled a letter report for each site wherein  August Mack provided comprehensive recommendations to the client on best management practices that would help reduce the amount of pollutants being discharged from present outfalls. August Mack also provided suggestions to the client for new stormwater sampling measures to implement at several sites in order to specifically help reduce concentrations of Total Suspended Solids (TSS).  

The work for all six recycling facility sites was completed and a report was issued within a six period. As a result of August Mack’s recommendations, the client was able to successfully implement measures to reduce the amount of pollutants being discharged from its recycling facilities, as well as adjust its business operations going forward to help avoid stormwater compliance issues in the future.
