Legislation and/or Regulation:
The New York State Department of Environment Conservation regulates discharges to surface (as opposed to EPA's regulation of Underground Injection Control). Surface discharge (including many septic systems) requires a SPDES permit (State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) from DEC.
What the SRM Service can do to help:
Training and Workshops:
- SPDES Awareness Training
- We can provide information to your staff on procedures that will ensure compliance with SPDES permits issued by the NYS DEC.
- Assist the district with writing procedures for compliances with the NYS SPDES permit.
- Act as a liaison between the school district and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
