Incorporating Ohio Stormwater Regulations

This presentation will review several Ohio case studies and how they addressed the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and Post-Construction Best Management Practices (BMPs) requirements for controlling water quality by the Ohio EPA’s Construction Stormwater Permit and quantity (discharge rate) control required at the local level. 

The case studies include greenfield construction of a large manufacturing facility in Circleville; linear construction of the Sawmill Parkway extension in Columbus; modifications to existing storm water facilities for the new State Route 315 interchange projects at Riverside Hospital in Columbus; working within aging infrastructure to establish a new facility as part of  the Whittier Peninsula Redevelopment in Columbus; and the use of constructed wetlands for stormwater treatment of both industrial and agricultural runoff at Honda of America in Marysville; and the creation of wetlands and wet prairies for Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks in Franklin and Madison Counties.

General Environmental Compliance for Industry

Learn how the project team navigated the regulatory requirements for the development of a 1.8 million square foot paper manufacturing facility in Central Ohio. This presentation will examine how environmental compliance impacted each phase of the project, from facility planning through design, construction, and start-up.  This includes how some decisions made during the preliminary planning process can become critical to the permitting and construction process.  Topics will include an overview of the different regulatory programs that must be met, how to time the submission of applications and obtain permits relative to the facility’s development, monitoring that must be in place as a part of the permits, and how to manage permit reporting, renewals, and overall compliance. The permits to be discussed encompass not only those issued by the Ohio EPA, but also permits that are a part of federal and/or local programs.
