Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency (PPC) Plan and Industrial Permiting For Pennsylvania Plant

Caltha LLP Project Summary

Project: PPC Plan, Storm Water Permitting and Permit Compliance
Client: National Manufacturer
Location(s): Pennsylvania

Key Elements: Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency (PPC) Plan preparation, Compliance plan, Permit application

Overview: Caltha LLP has provided consulting services to this manufacturing site at its Pennsylvania location to comply with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) industrial stormwater permit. In contrast to other States, PADEP requires permitted facilities to prepare and implement a Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency (PPC) Plan in accordance with “Guidelines for the Development and Implementation of Environmental Emergency Response Plans”. A PPC Plan is similar to a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) required by most States and US EPA for permitted facilities. However, the PPC Plan includes additional requirements beyond a typical SWPPP.

FAQ: How is a PPC Plan different than a SWPPP? Services included preparing facility PPC plan using Caltha's PPC Plan template, preparation of DEP application forms (Notice of Intent), and preparation of site-specific inspection checklists to comply with Pennsylvania inspection requirements applicable to this industrial sector. Caltha then provided ad hoc technical support to facility to address questions during roll-out of the compliance programs.
