Storm Water Monitoring
Network Environmental Systems (NES) provides a wide range of compliance management services. NES administers the California Trucking Association Compliance Group (CTACG) and the California Trucking Association Storm Water Program (CTASWP) which is designed to assist facilities with implementing California Storm Water Industrial General Permit (IGP) compliance activities.
CTA members receive a 10% discount per facility on their first year's membership in the CTA Compliance Group (CTACG) and/or the CTA Storm Water Program (CTASWP) which assist members in complying with storm water regulations. Any CTA member facility currently enrolled in a storm water program that refers another member facility to newly enroll in CTACG or CTASWP will also receive a 10% discount on one year of storm water program membership.
Simplified Templates and Forms - Members are provided with the documents necessary for implementing a cost effective Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program.
Document Review - NES reviews documents to verify accuracy and completeness and submits an Annual Report packet to the Regional Water Quality Board on behalf of your company.
50% Reduction in Storm Water Sample Collection - Facilities participating in CTACG will only be required to collect two (2) samples per compliance year instead of four (4). CTASWP facilities will be required to collect four(4) samples per compliance year. Members are provided sampling kits, guidance documents for sample collection, pre-paid shipping to/from lab and detailed reports of analytical results by NES.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Training - The CTACG and CTASWP provides members with semi-annual training classes. Regularly scheduled web training is also available. Classes are designed to highlight the new IGP requirements and how to implement them.
Site Visits - Members of the CTACG and CTSWP receive an annual site visit by NES to assist with adherence to the IGP. NES, as the CTACG Group Leader is required to conduct annual site evaluations of all CTACG member facilities. These site visits are conducted by NES trained staff and geared towards preparing facilities for formal regulatory inspections by the Water Board.
Storm Water Permit Support and Document Review - The CTACG and CTACWP coordinate with each facility to identify any necessary corrections or clarifications prior to submitting documents to the appropriate Water Boards.
