Pinky Feria Mingo, Jefferson County Public Health Bryan McKinnon, Kitsap Public Health District
Short History of the LSC Program SQG + Stormwater Partnership with local agencies Boots on the Ground Door-to-door technical assistance Education focused
Challenges Ecology dB not sufficient for locals Specific data difficult to pull out Inconsistent data entry Fast-track Program Development Not all recipients had a SQG program Get money, develop program No policies, no procedures Staff turnover 4 LSC Specialists in 6 years
Program Development Who do we want to inspect? What do the businesses need from us? What data do we want to collect? What incentives can we provide? What behavior are we trying to change?
Resources: Borrow, borrow, borrow
Industry Specific Checklists
Inspection/Training Tools Develop your resources Have something the business can use Focus on the behavior you want them to change Provide options for disposal/management
Resources For Businesses
Program Incentives Social Marketing Strategies Reduce/Eliminate the barrier: Labeling Spill Prevention Free Spill Kits Secondary Containment Voucher to reimburse 75% of the cost of a secondary containment
Different Tools for Different Audiences Workshops for Artists Environmental and Human Health Issues Artists non-traditional business Use same industrial solvents/chemicals Need good information
Pollution Prevention Data What to collect for SQGs and why? Essential Business Information Examples: Universal Business Index Number (UBI) Industry Type (e.g., NAICS or the North American Industry Classification System) Tax Parcel ID Point of Contact Existing Permits (e.g., Industrial Discharge or Clean Air) Septic or Sewer Status
P2 Data Cont’d. Waste – Identify Waste Streams Categorically Dangerous/Hazardous Wastes Universal Wastes Recyclables Municipal Solid Wastes Quantity of Wastes Disposal Method On-Site Handling and Storage Regulatory Requirements for Above Met Application of Best Management Practices
Application of Data Data that begins pollution prevention Is the SQG non-compliant? Storage Spills/leaks Plumbing connections Permitting Is there a BMP that may be implemented? Is the SQG a “repeat offender?”
Great Data, But Now What?
Data Management Building Reports For Those Stakeholders Excel Access Databases Any database that has the ability to adapt/grow to meet stakeholder needs* Adaptability of data management from the beginning
The Bentley or the Yugo of Data?
The Possibilities For Government Sharing environmental data internally with other programs Sharing environmental indicator data: correlating waste streams to contaminant analytical from the field (e.g., surface water/pathways) Sharing resources for non-environmental components of government Planning and Development (e.g., Built Environment)
The Possibilities For Business Networking…connecting one SQGs waste with an SQG that may see it as otherwise Sharing resources for handling waste and/or products Sharing non-proprietary solutions to challenges posed by waste management Saving businesses money by limiting liability and enabling them to become more efficient through cost savings Adding transparency to government by working with businesses to better understand regulations
