Enforcing water quality standards help keep the public safe

Logically, you may know that this is a good thing, but when the Environmental Protection Agency or a Georgia environmental agency comes knocking on your door, you may not appreciate it. Alleged violations of water quality standards can be costly to your business. You may need someone in your corner to help you get through your dealings with these agencies in a way that keeps your business profitable.

Do you have to report chemical exposure data to the EPA?

The Toxic Substances Control Act requires certain manufactures (whether here in Georgia or elsewhere), including those that import substances, to comply with the Chemical Data Reporting rule enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency. This rule requires companies who produce and use large quantities of certain chemicals. The EPA compiles information related to chemical exposure. If your company is one that must be in compliance with this rule, it may help to understand what you need to do in order to avoid running into trouble with the EPA.

Make sure your project doesn't go extinct

Every new development project needs to comply with certain rules and regulations put forth by the federal or state government that apply to the project. Many of those issues revolve around the environment. Before you purchase the land you need, it would be advisable to be sure that it does not have any environmental issues.

Efforts to keep water pollution at bay get recognized

The health of Georgia's environment is the responsibility of everyone. To that end, the Georgia Water Coalition recently recognized the efforts of the "Clean 13" to keep water pollution at bay. The coalition includes more than 240 organizations varying from hunting and fishing groups to conservation and environmental organizations to businesses and faith-based organizations that work to protect the waterways here in Georgia.
