Beneath the Surface of It All…


Identify Stakeholders

Stake Holders? …or Stakeholders!

Pollution Prevention Data

  • What to collect for SQGs and why?

    • Essential Business Information

      • Examples:

        • Universal Business Index Number (UBI)

        • Industry Type (e.g., NAICS or the North American Industry Classification System)

        • Tax Parcel ID

        • Point of Contact

        • Existing Permits (e.g., Industrial Discharge or Clean Air)

        • Septic or Sewer Status

P2 Data Cont’d.

  • Waste – Identify Waste Streams

    • Categorically

      • Dangerous/Hazardous Wastes

      • Universal Wastes

      • Recyclables

      • Municipal Solid Wastes

    • Quantity of Wastes

    • Disposal Method

    • On-Site Handling and Storage

  • Regulatory Requirements for Above Met

  • Application of Best Management Practices

Application of Data

  • Data that begins pollution prevention

    • Is the SQG non-compliant?

      • Storage

      • Spills/leaks

      • Plumbing connections

      • Permitting

    • Is there a BMP that may be implemented?

    • Is the SQG a “repeat offender?”

Great Data, But Now What?

Data Management

  • Building Reports For Those Stakeholders

    • Excel

    • Access Databases

    • Any database that has the ability to adapt/grow to meet stakeholder needs*

  • Adaptability of data management from the beginning

Reporting Tools

Reporting Tools

The Bentley or the Yugo of Data?

The Possibilities

  • For Government

    • Sharing environmental data internally with other programs

    • Sharing environmental indicator data: correlating waste streams to contaminant analytical from the field (e.g., surface water/pathways)

    • Sharing resources for non-environmental components of government

    • Planning and Development (e.g., Built Environment)

The Possibilities

  • For Business

    • Networking…connecting one SQGs waste with an SQG that may see it as otherwise

    • Sharing resources for handling waste and/or products

    • Sharing non-proprietary solutions to challenges posed by waste management

    • Saving businesses money by limiting liability and enabling them to become more efficient through cost savings

    • Adding transparency to government by working with businesses to better understand regulations
