Blackstone staff have completed site visits at several SpecChem facilities to support the preparation of SPCC Plans and SWPPPs, stormwater and NPDES permit compliance, and hazardous waste management compliance. SPCC Plans have been developed in general accordance with United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guidance in 40 CFR Part 112, Oil Pollution Prevention. NPDES permitting and SWPPP requirements are dependent upon the individual state in which a facility is located.
Blackstone has worked closely with SpecChem personnel and State Regulators to ensure SpecChem facility compliance with their specific state NPDES requirements. Additionally, Blackstone has prepared site-specific SWPPPs in order to incorporate individual state requirements.
Blackstone has also provided SpecChem with hazardous waste permitting and compliance support. Services provided have included waste characterization determinations, generator status determinations, review of waste management requirements, and regulatory compliance support.
