Environmental permitting is an important part of helping our clients at both federal installations and manufacturing facilities with their environmental compliance needs. We routinely navigate the complex permitting process for our clients. We can help your facility apply to establish a new permit, or renew an existing one. We have the specific knowledge and experience to streamline the permitting process to make sure your time and resources are managed efficiently. Our team has experience establishing the following environmental permits:
- NPDES Permit– According to the EPA, “The Clean Water Act prohibits anybody from discharging ‘pollutants’ through a ‘point source’ into a ‘water of the United States’ unless they have an NPDES permit. The permit will contain limits on what you can discharge, monitoring and reporting requirements, and other provisions to ensure that the discharge does not hurt water quality or people’s health. In essence, the permit translates general requirements of the Clean Water Act into specific provisions tailored to the operations of each person discharging pollutants.”
- EPA ID Number– The EPA’s website states, “Federal regulations require large and small quantity generators of hazardous waste to obtain an EPA Identification (EPA ID) number using EPA Form 8700-12 and to submit the completed form to the authorized state agency or EPA regional office if the state is not authorized to implement the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Subtitle C program.” Our environmental permitting team can help you determine if you are required to obtain the ID number or if you are subject to state-specific reporting requirement.
- Title V Air Permit- Congress established the Title V Operating Permit program as part of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. The Operating Permit Program ensures that air quality control requirements are in place and met. Click here to see who has to obtain a Title V Air Permit.
