The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater regulatory climate is currently changing throughout the country with more requirements and oversight. Nowhere is this more evident that in California with the adoption of the Industrial General Permit (CAS000001; 2014-0057-DWQ).

Rubik’s skilled Qualified Industrial Storm Water Practitioners (QISPs) can help you navigate the requirements, enroll in the permit, submit a Notice of Intent (NOI), develop a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), implement Best Available Technology Economically Achievable (BAT) and Best Conventional Pollutant Control Technology (BCT), and provide training for your staff.

Have you received a “Notice of Requirement for Coverage Under the Statewide Stormwater Industrial General Permit” letter from the California Regional Water Quality Control Board? Although many facilities require coverage, yours may not. Contact us today to evaluate your facility.

Environmental data is often collected without a defensible strategy for future use. Without validation, your data integrity may not withstand legal challenges, support risk assessments, achieve regulatory requirements, or meet project data quality objectives (DQOs). Frequently, projects mature without a solid foundation and only in the final steps does the data integrity receive scrutiny. Defending non-validated data may result in unnecessary cost increases, resampling, and/or project delays.

Rubik’s environmental data validation experience ranges from EPA Superfund to small projects where success relies on data quality and usability. To facilitate quick, efficient, and cost-effective data validation, Rubik has developed a platform for automated laboratory data verification. Rubik’s Automated Environmental Data Verification (AEDV) tool significantly reduces the time and cost to perform data verification and validation. Our system supports clients, consultants, legal inquires and regulatory agencies in the quest for usable, defensible, and inexpensive data validation.

The AEDV is a dynamic system that can scale to project requirements. Rubik’s team of data experts can accept electronic data deliverables (EDDs) in any format and customize validation outputs for any application or reporting requirement. A list of basic AEDV parameters are included here.
