What to Expect During an Ohio EPA Inspection

If you have not been through an Ohio EPA inspection, this article will give you a general idea of the inspection process and what to expect if an inspector does show up at your door.

Community Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) Can Get Free On-Site Help to Maintain Compliance and Save Money

Ohio communities with wastewater treatment plants that have design capacities ranging from 1000 gallons per day up to 5 million gallons a day (MGD) can access free on-site assistance to help address problems at their wastewater treatment plants. DEFA’s Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) Compliance Assistance Unit (CAU) experts work alongside local wastewater treatment staff to help identify factors impacting the plant’s ability to operate in compliance with its discharge permits. For more than 20 years, DEFA CAU staff have traveled the state, helping POTWs identify and create cost-effective, affordable solutions to bring them back into compliance.
