Stormwater and Spill Management at an Iron Pipe Foundry in Texas
Abstract:Large industrial sites have had permits for storm water discharges under the NPDES program of the Clean Water Act since the mid to late 80's. Recent emphasis has been placed on regulated facilities to prepare and implement Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans under the Oil Pollution Prevention Act (40 CFR 112). A large iron pipe foundry in Texas has several storm water outfalls which are monitored for various water quality parameters.
Two of its outfalls (003 and 004) were identified in its recently completed SPCC plan as being susceptible to oily water discharges due to storage of oils in the two drainage basins. This paper describes the approach taken at this facility to address the dual objectives of improving storm water discharge quality and spill control with a structural Best Management Practice (BMP).
