EPA Pollution Prevention Checklist for Dredging Mobile App
Dredging activities in fresh and saltwater environments can have a variety of impacts on the environment.
How does it work?
These impacts can include benthic disturbances, water quality degradation, and impacts on aquatic organisms, and water and soil contamination resulting from marine and upland disposal of dredged materials. Use the app to incorporate pollution prevention into designing alternatives and avoiding and mitigating environmental effects. The app includes a detailed checklist specific to dredging. The Pollution Prevention Act (PPA), established a national policy mandating the incorporation of pollution prevention concepts and techniques into the operations and activities of the Federal Government. Pollution should be prevented or reduced at the source. The EPA Pollution Prevention Checklist for Dredging mobile app allows you to replace your paper prevention checklist with a smartphone or tablet. The mobile form includes fields to document items such as date of pollution prevention check, company, the person completing the check of dredging, title and captures a signature and records comments and corrective actions. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your air quality control records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form.
