Effective planning, management, and compliance with environmental regulations is a critical component of doing business economically, effectively, and sustainably. Without proper environmental compliance, companies expose themselves to potential regulatory fines and damaged reputations.

Whether it is the proper storage of chemicals, the reporting of waste materials disposed of offsite, air emissions, or the discharge of materials through a permitted operation, nearly all companies and facilities are subject to environmental regulations. With the frequent regulatory changes and overlapping responsibilities of various federal and state agencies, maintaining compliance represents a constant challenge.

Trihydro has decades of experience conducting audit and compliance services for small sites, large facilities, and company-wide operations. Our project teams have experience with local, state, and federal agencies in areas such as the Clean Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), and the Oil Pollution Act.

Pollution Prevention

POLLUTION PREVENTION

Under the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Pollution Prevention Act (PPA), various companies and facilities are required to reduce the amount of pollution created through production and/or operation. Pollution prevention, also called source reduction, typically involves modifying processes, using nontoxic or less toxic substances, and focusing on resource conservation and/or reuse.

By prescribing to pollution prevention requirements, owners and operators can reduce pollutants entering waste streams and reduce hazards to human health and the environment.

SPILL PREVENTION, CONTROL, AND COUNTERMEASURE (SPCC)

Under the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation (40 CFR part 112), certain facilities are required to develop and maintain Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans to protect against adverse effects of oil spills. Depending on the volume of oil or location in regard to navigable waters, a site will be required to maintain an SPCC. Facilities fall under the rule if there is aboveground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons or underground storage greater than 42,000 gallons. Applicable oils covered in an SPCC plan include ...

Facility Response Plans (FRPs)

FACILITY RESPONSE PLANS (FRPs)

Under the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation (40 CFR part 112), "substantial harm" facilities that store or use oil are required to develop and maintain a Facility Response Plan (FRP). An FRP provides documentation that a facility is prepared to respond to a "worst case" oil spill as well as small and medium discharges. A substantial harm facility is a facility that, due to its location, could cause environmental risk if a discharge were to occur.

Trihydro is familiar with environmental programs at terminals, pipelines, and marine locations. We assist owners ...
