Industrial & Permit Monitoring Analysis

NPDES

Water pollution degrades surface waters making them unsafe for drinking, fishing, swimming, and other activities. As authorized by the Clean Water Act, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge pollutants into waters of the United States. Point sources are discrete conveyances such as pipes or man-made ditches. Individual homes that are connected to a municipal system, use a septic system, or do not have a surface discharge do not need an NPDES permit; however, industrial, municipal, and other facilities must obtain permits if their discharges go directly to surface waters. In most cases, the NPDES permit program is administered by authorized states. Since its introduction in 1972, the NPDES permit program is responsible for significant improvements to our Nation’s water quality.


ChemServe utilizes microwave preparation equipment to achieve the stringent detection limit requirements for the NPDES program. 

Industrial Monitoring

The monitoring of industrial processes, their releases and their impact on the environment are key elements of regulatory control. The self-monitoring system is a system that primarily relates to measurements of process conditions (process operation and controls), process inputs, releases and environmental pollution levels as well as reporting of the results to the competent authorities. Monitoring can be carried out by the industrial establishment or carried out on behalf and paid for by the industrial establishment. The information obtained from a sampling and monitoring system must be recorded and the results reported to the appropriate internal and external decision-makers.

ChemServe has extensive experience in the monitoring arena and owns all of the equipment necessary to perform sampling and analysis for industry monitoring and specific permit requirements you may have.

MWRA

ChemServe performs most analysis that may be required for a particular monitoring situation by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA). Analysis will be performed based on the most current permit on hand and can be reported directly to the MWRA upon completion of analysis.
