Stormwater Education for Businesses

Specific businesses can have a direct impact on our creeks and lakes. They can negatively impact stormwater by improper day-to-day activities, such as:

  • Cleaning of equipment or buildings
  • Spills
  • Materials handling
  • Cooling and refrigeration equipment maintenance
  • Landscaping and grounds maintenance
  • Dumpster and loading dock areas
  • Parking lots
  • Illegal connections to storm drainage systems

Our staff are here to help educate you about the rules and regulations surrounding your business and water quality issues. Need help preparing for an inspection or training new employees? We can help get you off on the right foot and provide the education and support you need to have a positive impact on our stormwater system. If you have questions or concerns about your facility’s inspection, contact our compliance and inspector professionals.

Clean up your work area…

When cleaning up your work area after vehicle repair NEVER hose down automotive fluid spills. To absorb spills on concrete surfaces, sprinkle saw dust, kitty litter, or cornmeal. Allow it to sit for several hours, and then sweep it into a bag and place it in the trash.
