EPA Auto Salvage Guide: Storm Water Mobile App
Many businesses have outside processes, storage units and/or material handling areas.
How does it work?
Auto salvage yards typically have outdoor areas where salvage operations are conducted or materials are stored. Storm water contacting these outdoor areas can carry pollutants such as heavy metals, oils and solvents directly to a stream, ditch, lake or other surface water. In 1987 the Clean Water Act was amended to include requirements for controlling storm water discharges at industrial sites. Even a small business may be subject to EPA.s storm water regulations. Use the EPA Auto Salvage Guide: Storm Water mobile app to ensure your salvage yard is in compliance. Go Green with GoCanvas!
