Regulatory Issues in Concrete

Concrete industry water regulations are challenging. Many different agencies can inspect and fine both for slurry discharge and for silicosis. The list of agencies implementing these is long. The federal government, OSHA, state governments, by county environmental departments, by municipalities, by state game and fish departments, and by waste water treatment plants. Also by other agencies such as groundwater associations, rural water districts, watershed districts, environmental and health departments. It can be daunting to say the least. Unlike many environmental engineering firms, we will offer quick sound advice on regulatory issues that impact your business
The new silicosis standards require your concrete facility to carefully plan and manage processes to ensure the air quality standards are met. It is extremely important to utilize water and rinse water throughout most concrete facilities to keep dust to a minimum.
Concrete facilities that have bodies of water nearby need to obtain water discharge permits from their state pollution control agency or the EPA. Please follow the links to the right for further information.
Many firms lack the resources and expertise to understand industrial water and wastewater regulations. They worry daily about their discharge but fear the unknown costs to solve the problem. Unfortunately it is expensive and risky to be found in non-compliance. Pollution control authorities are more understanding of small infractions from a firm that is making an effort to comply with the regulations than from a firm that has made no effort. Full Circle Water is your partner to cost-effectively meet regulatory standards.
Concrete slurry producers must to be aware that they are liable for the wastes they produce. Paying firms to dispose of these wastes does not eliminate this liability. It is important for you to understand the regulations that impact your business and to have a plan to effectively deal with them.
