In preparing our client’s Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and overall Storm Water Monitoring Programs, Environmental.com (EDC) employs all due care and diligence.
EDC makes no assurances that the plans developed and implemented will exempt a company from liability by any applicable government agency, possible civil liability, or prosecution by state or local law enforcement agencies.
Each company and its owner(s)/operator(s) are obligated to implement and maintain an effective monitoring program for storm water pollution prevention. This can be accomplished by implementing: all BMPs, employee training, and compliance with the regulations. The SWPPP and overall Storm Water Monitoring Programs EDC provides contain all elements for compliance. However, the Legally Responsible Person (LRP) has the duty and obligation to ensure that all elements contained in the General Permit are complied with at the facility. Furthermore, the company’s owner/manager/supervisor, for whom the program was prepared for, should continually update their SWPPP and Best Management Practices (BMP) to reflect changes or interpretations, if any, which may occur in state or federal regulations, or changes within the operations of the facility.
