The CP Environmental Group (CPEG) team has prepared multiple environmental permit applications and compliance plans as well as performing the subsequent compliance monitoring and reporting required to maintain these plans/permits. The proper application and analysis of the resulting data using a business solutions mindset saves our clients time, frustration, and money.
Environmental Compliance Plans and Permits
Various types of environmental compliance plans and permit applications have been successfully prepared by the CPEG team including Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) plans; National Pollutant Discharge and Elimination System (NPDES) permits; Encroachment permits; Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPP); Work Plans; Municipal Waste Landfill Permits, including minor and major modifications; Beneficial Reuse permits; Preparedness, Prevention and Contingency (PPC) plans; Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) plans; Spill Prevention Response (SPR) plans; and the One Plan (combination of SPCC, PPC, SWPP, SPR, and emergency response plan) for operating facilities.
The proper collection of soil, groundwater and waste materials (leachate, spoil piles, etc.) is the foundation of any site investigation or compliance monitoring activity and is, therefore, of the utmost importance. CP Environmental Group (CPEG) associates are thoroughly trained in appropriate sampling procedures for environmental media as outlined in the CPEG Field Standard Operating Procedures (FSOP) Manual. These FSOPs are designed to establish internal procedural consistency at CPEG. Client specific procedures, requirements, and scopes of work are also maintained. Additionally, CPEG has a comprehensive health and safety policy manual that must be used in conjunction with the implementation of any FSOPs, as applicable. Our team ensures that adequate control and documentation procedures are utilized from initiation to completion of the sampling activities so that the data collected are of the highest quality and representative of actual site conditions.
QA/QC, Statistics and Reporting
During field activities, the field data (including Daily Activity Logs, Soil Boring Logs, Monitoring Well Construction Diagrams, Water Sampling Summary Logs, Chain-of- Custody Records, and other field data) are submitted on a minimum of a weekly basis to the CPEG Project Manager for initial review. Aquifer testing data is downloaded to a personal computer and input into an aquifer testing program, as applicable. After completion of the initial review and data evaluation, including statistical analysis as applicable, a project manager will begin report preparation. After completion of the report and compiling data, the report is peer-reviewed. After completion of the review process, the report is submitted to the client program director/CPEG principle for final review, data evaluation, and approval. During the final review process, remedial options or recommendations are evaluated, as applicable.
