Environmental Compliance Reporting
A manufacturing company hired ARRO as the facility’s environmental engineer to complete various annual environmental compliance reports, submit permits, and provide guidance for the facility to maintain compliance with regulatory parties at the company’s location in York County, Pennsylvania. For confidentiality purposes, the facility’s name has been excluded. The facility engages in manufacturing activities that include the manufacturing of raw materials and goods (soaps, detergents, vitamins, supplements, etc.), packaging, storage, and distribution of the final products. Waste produced onsite include general trash, recyclables (plastic, glass, metal), and hazardous waste (lab solvent, ink wastes, aerosols). Due to the nature of the facility, they are responsible for meeting the requirements of several regulatory parties and programs. As the environmental engineer for the facility, ARRO completes the necessary reports and inspections to maintain the facility’s compliance.
ARRO completed the facility’s 2019 annual Integrated Spill Plan, which outlines their spill leak prevention and response, countermeasures, emergency spill control network, stormwater management practices, and sediment and erosion prevention. The plan also outlines the different requirements set out by regulatory parties, such as the Department of Environmental Protection, that the facility must remain in compliance with. Working with the facility, ARRO has created plans for each of these regulations and has guided the facility in how they can successfully execute these plans. These include the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan, Pollution Prevention and Contingency (PPC) Plan, Spill Prevention Response (SPR) Plan, RCRA Emergency preparedness and Prevention-Contingency Plan, and an EPCRA EHS Release Notification. The regulations and acts that require these plans are intended to prevent pollutants and hazardous from being discharged into United States waters, mitigate potential hazards, and to create a line of communication for the facility to maintain in case of an emergency.
