AZPDES Compliance Support
M&A played a critical role in bringing an industrial client back into compliance with AZPDES permit requirements.
- Client: Confidential
- Time frame: 2011
- Location: Arizona
This facility had multiple outfalls regulated under the AZPDES permit. The client had failed to report exceedances and conduct follow-up monitoring as required under the permit. In addition, multiple Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs) were delinquent. ADEQ issued a Notice of Opportunity to Correct (NOC) deficiencies in monitoring and reporting under the permit, including several failures of Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) tests.
Our work for this project included:
- Preparing and submitting delinquent DMRs to ADEQ
- Identifying permit requirements for reporting and appropriate client responses in the case of future exceedances
- Developing a WET test plan to guide sample collection and handling protocols to verify permit compliance
- Scheduling laboratory and field efforts for client participation in a required DMR / QA study
ADEQ closed the NOC after M&A caught up delinquent reports and provided documentation to demonstrate substantial compliance with permit requirements.
