At Washbaysolutions, we are unique in that we provide environmental coordination as an integral part of our service. Before, during, and after system installations, we work closely with your company’s end users, managers and the local environmental officials to make sure everyone is completely satisfied with our systems.
- Before Installation – We interview company personnel to understand their needs, obtain water samples and water analyses (if needed), and talk to local Pre-Treatment Coordinators to determine local environmental requirements.
- During Installation – We complete permit application and documents (if necessary) and coordinate with installers, company personnel and local environmental officials.
- After Installation – We train personnel on equipment usage and maintenance procedures and establish an environmental testing program, if needed.

What is an SPCC?
In addition to fulfilling requirements of Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112 (40 CFR part 112), the SPCC Plan is used as a reference for oil storage information and testing records, as a tool to communicate practices on preventing and responding to discharges with employees, as a guide to facility inspections, and as a resource during emergency response. All facilities with over 1320 gallons of oil storage on the facility are required to prepare a SPCC.
What is an EMS?
The EMS is the part of the overall management system that includes organizational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for developing, implementing achieving and reviewing the environmental policy. An environmental management system brings together the people, policies, plans, review mechanisms, and procedures used to manage environmental issues at a facility or in an organization.
What is a NPDES Permit?
Authorized by the Clean Water Act, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge pollutants into waters of the United States. Industrial, municipal, and other facilities must obtain permits if their discharges go directly to surface waters. If you discharge pollutants into a municipal sanitary sewer system, you do not need an NPDES permit, but you do need to adhere to municipality’s effluent requirements. (Source US EPA)
