COMPLIANCE

Fluid Resource Management’s compliance officers are responsible for working with the Operations and Maintenance Divisions and outside clients to ensure that all facilities under their stewardship are able to comply with applicable discharge permits and regulations.  They review the complete written history of the facility, meet with regulatory agencies on behalf of clients to discuss compliance concerns, violations, and fines and then work together with regulators and clients to develop a Facility Compliance Plan (FCP) which may include some or all of the following:

  • Bringing sampling requirements up to date 
  • Creating future sampling schedules
  • Coordinating services with a local laboratory
  • Ensuring that all regulatory agency reporting is current 

When a compliance plan has been approved, FRM can continue to act as the liaison between regulatory agencies and clients while facilities are brought back into compliance.  Once the facility is compliant with the discharge permit and all regulatory agency regulations, compliance officers can help clients stay ahead of all future reporting deadlines and inspections by implementing a system of master schedules and automated reminders.
