We Understand the Cost of Compliance

We develop an environmental and regulatory applicability profile and checklist for each air permitting project to ensure all compliance issues are resolved prior to securing authorization from the agency.  This approach has helped us save our clients thousands of dollars in consulting fees and reduced lead time of getting the air permit back from the agency.  We strive to reduce the comments and kick backs from the agency by doing it right the first time.

Air Modeling and the Complexities of NAAQS

National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) are progressively becoming more stringent forcing the air modeling into complex detail to achieve air permit authorization through the agency.  When you use ADVM2 environmental consultants to work on your air permit application, all of our consultants working on your project will have had the latest air quality modeling training and are resident experts in the air modeling craft.  We consistently work with the agencies to understand the latest direction of NAAQS interpretations, regulatory changes, and air modeling expectations.  Our goal is to minimize the surprises and lead time of your next project relative to air modeling.

ADVM2 thinks of air modeling as a tool to analyze emissions increments and develop a table of variables to give you a technical representation of technology changes that could mean the difference between exceedance or no exceedance.  Moving a stack a few feet or raising and lowering a stack by a few feet are just a few low hanging fruit examples of the guidance ADVM2 gives its clients to help streamline authorization with minimal capital expense and lead time.

ADVM2’s goal is to always avoid air modeling when applicable but if necessary, reduce the operational burden of the client by working directly with the agency and submitting a compliant air quality model that satisfies the most stringent regulations.  We reduce our client’s lead time and kick backs by developing an air quality protocol and plan that fits our client’s needs as well as satisfies the air modelers in the agency.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Water Permits

From small operations to big and complex refineries, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations apply to all facilities that desire the ability to discharge pollutants to the navigable waters of the United States.

ADVM2 NPDES Water Permitting Expertise

Our goal is not only to ensure that your facility complies with each and every applicable requirement of the NPDES permit program, but review all approaches to minimize operation impact and maximize cost efficiency. We’ve successfully prepared hundreds of permits keeping businesses operating and thriving within the regulatory scrutiny.

Which water permits and plans do I need?

Depending on required permit type and site characteristics, the development of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) might be part of your complete compliance program. Our team of experienced consultants have created an innovative streamlined process that successfully outlines the corresponding Best Management Practices (BMP), the necessary monitoring and reporting requirements, and the correct assessment of potential pollution sources for your facility. We understand that having an accurate and highly detailed plan is only half of your comprehensive site compliance evaluation; therefore, we perform site inspections on a regular basis and provide personalized training to the designated responsible pollution prevention team to ensure all SWPPP’s guidelines are constantly updated, fully understood and always followed.

You may also need an Spill Prevention Controls and Countermeasures Plan (SPCC)

Our experienced team have also developed and certified hundreds of Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans for a wide array of facilities producing, storing, refining or distributing oil and oil products. In order to avoid unnecessary expenses and delays, we start by getting a well-founded knowledge of your particular facility layout and operations to generate a precise potential spill inventory and equipment failure analysis. Using site-specific information allows us to effectively determine the most appropriate and reliable prevention/contingency plan for your facility. Since we understand a flawless management of preventive actions and corrective procedures is the most important part of your SPCC plan, we provide checklists and training to ensure all inspections, reporting, and notifications are performed correctly and on time.
