West Virginia DEP Leading Environmental Compliance and Permitting Workshop June 10


SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Would your business be prepared if an inspector with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection showed up at your work site? Do the new Aboveground Storage Tank rules apply to your facility? Do you have all the required permits? The DEP is leading a day-long workshop June 10 for business owners to get answers to all of those questions and more.

The seminar at the Advanced Technology Center in South Charleston is designed to inform and guide participants to a better understanding of permits that are required by the DEP and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Following the seminar, participants will also be able to develop and implement a compliant Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), Groundwater Protection Plan (GPP), and Spill Pollution Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan. Cost is $199 per person and lunch will be provided.

Leading the workshop is Dr. Terry Polen, DEP ombudsman. Other subjects being addressed at the seminar are regulations for used oil, the oil and gas permitting process, and toxic release reporting procedures.

Registration for this event ends June 5. For more information or to register, email Michelle Kyker with the West Virginia University Manufacturing Extension Partnership at Michelle.Kyker@mail.wvu.edu. Registration is also available online at www.wvmep.com.
