Step 3

Develop a Pollution Prevention (P2) Policy Statement. A fully editable Model P2 Policy Statement can be found on the right-hand side of this page under "Documents".

Past annual inspections must indicate overall compliance with our Liquid Waste Control Program rules and your P2 Plan.

Step 4

Develop and Implement a Pollution Prevention (P2) Plan. A fully editable Model P2 Plan can be found on the right-hand side of this page under "Documents".

Your company must notify the City's Environmental Analyst and your waste hauler of your next scheduled liquid waste hauling so our program can perform a control monitoring (testing) event on this hauled liquid waste.

Step 5

Demonstrate through Baseline-Monitoring that liquid waste generated from their facility is non-hazardous, compatible, and in compliance with pollutant guidance levels established in Section 77:01:01:A02 of these rules.

Control monitoring results must indicate that your liquid waste is in compliance with guidance levels established in Section 77:01:01:A02 of the City's Liquid Waste Control Program Rules.

In addition to completing the above steps, it is important that your company is familiar with the City's Liquid Waste Control Program Rules. It is the sole responsibility of the company to comply with all the requirements set forth within these rules.
