Snowmelt & Stormwater Samples http://hubs.ly/H06mQmX0

This is something outside my wheelhouse, can anyone shine light on this? It's regarding pesticides, NPDES permits, and farmers. Seems like needing a NPDES permit to spray pesticides (ie pollutants) over waterways makes sense, but if the regulations are redundant then this isn't needed. Maybe the waterways aren't actually navigable (over-reach from the USEPA)? I'm torn because I'm all for less regulations, but pro water quality.

Any thoughts?

Your stormwater is your responsibility!

Stuff like this continues to amaze me. I can't for the life of me imagine diverting stormwater runoff from my property to a neighbors, what a bad move!

As this fellow New Jersey resident found out the hard way, you can't divert stormwater off your property, especially if it's going to cause damage at another location. This guy's going to jail (we'll see what actually happens) for doing such.

Here's a hint - if you have a stormwater permit don't ever, ever think about doing anything like this knucklehead did!

I've been to my fair share of dirty, dusty concrete plants with operators calling their highly valuable, durable, and resilient product "mud". This has to stop. We as an industry need to do our best to move our public "image" from dirty, dusty, and noisy, to a helpful, respectful, clean, and valuable asset to a community.

Even though this new facility sounds like it'll be completely indoors, and replacing a lot covered in debris (both great things!) people are still pushing back.

If we don't change our image, every time a company wants to open a new facility we can expect pushback like this.

It seems like every year we end up helping someone who's gotten in trouble for Tier II Community Right-to-Know Reporting issues. Whether it's done incorrectly, or not at all, it's clear that hiding behind the defense of "I didn't know about it!" isn't cutting it anymore. When you have county LEPC's using the internet to help remind local businesses, it's a win-win for everyone involved.

Remember, Community-Right-to-Know Reporting is due MARCH 1ST, so make sure you get on this ASAP if you haven't already!

TRI Reporting & Community Right-to-Know Reporting in North Carolina http://hubs.ly/H06hdJ50

A local township is encouraging homeowners to consider their actions when it comes to stormwater management. It's amazing that in 2017 we still need to tell people to pick up after their pets, not to litter, and don't treat a catch basin as a black hole. http://hubs.ly/H06gspH0

It's nice to know big brother has your back. Local government agencies are actively notifying businesses in Benton County, Missouri about upcoming Community Right-to-Know Reporting requirements. It would be fantastic to see this level of education and engagement on all levels of government, not just proactive county level officials!
