Alameda, CA / PRNewswire / — Blymyer Engineers’ Environmental Compliance Division is pleased to announce that Nina Schittli, Hazel Roberts and Sue Greenspan have completed training offered by the California Storm Water Quality Association (CASQA) to become Industrial General Permit (IGP) Trainers of Record (ToRs) and Qualified Industrial Storm Water Practitioners (QISPs). Completion of this IGP-ToR training allows the company’s Environmental Compliance Division to provide hands on training to both clients and other candidates who wish to become QISPs. Presently fewer than 150 ToRs are certified in California.
Nina Schittli explains, “This certification is a significant achievement and allows us to share our experience and guidance with a wide group of storm water professionals who work to help California industrial dischargers comply with the IGP. Blymyer Engineers’ Environmental Compliance Division has been a leader in industrial storm water compliance since the 1990s, when the EPA began requiring industrial facilities to obtain National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. Since then, we have assisted hundreds of industrial clients coast-to-coast, including local and nationwide food and beverage manufacturers, freight transportation companies, and package delivery services, to develop and implement their NPDES compliance programs.”
As IGP-ToRs Blymyer Engineers is now able to offer services as a Compliance Group Leader under the IGP. Compliance Groups are responsible for managing groups of industrial dischargers with similar industrial activities.
Blymyer Engineers is pleased to offer a Compliance Group for the transportation industry. Members of our Group will benefit from a 50% reduction in storm water discharge sampling and reduced reporting requirements. Our Group offers the tools, training and guidance necessary to achieve compliance with the new IGP while keeping compliance costs to a minimum.
