Environmental Firms Teach How to Avoid Big Trouble with the NJDEP - 2/9/2011

An article by Paul Schatz, CPG, Assistant Vice President, titled, "Environmental Firms Can Teach Schools, Colleges and Universities How to Avoid Big Trouble with the NJDEP" appeared in the February 2011 edition of the Commerce Magazine.

A private university in New Jersey was undergoing an inspection by the NJDEP for air emissions that affected dozens of their buildings.  NJDEP was threatening the university with inclusion in their most stringent permitting and sample collection program called “Title V” Air Permitting.  To be regulated by this program would cost the university several hundred thousand dollars a year; funds they did not anticipate nor budget.  Conversely, if they did not implement an air monitoring and permitting program they were subject to significant fines.  EWMA inspected the campuses, negotiated with the NJDEP, made recommendations, and utilized the permitting option that allowed the university’s potential to emit (PTE) to be outside of Title V and in the minor facility category.
