Industrial Regulatory Compliance

Prism understands the regulatory requirements for industrial manufacturing facilities and operations.  We're experienced in providing regulatory compliance for smaller fabrication facilities to large manufacturing plants.  Our compliance services include auditing, assessing, managing, and permitting for regulatory programs covering air emissions, wastewater discharge, stormwater, and waste management.


Prism's industrial regulatory compliance program includes expertise in wastewater discharge, including National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting and monitoring.  Prism can assist in permitting, sample collection, reporting (DMRs), and renewals.


Prism understands Stormwater compliance, including preparing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs), permitting, and reporting.  Prism has Michigan Certified Stormwater Operators (CSO) and Indiana Qualified Professionals (QP) on staff to support state regulated stormwater compliance programs.

Compliance Audits

Compliance with environmental regulations can be challenging for industrial manufacturing facilities.  Prism provides environmental regulatory compliance auditing to help navigate clients through federal, state, and local requirements. Our expertise includes environmental concerns with the Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Superfund (CERLCA/SARA), and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).


We provide air emissions permitting and reporting guidance for compliance with Title V of the Clean Air Act (CAA).   Prism can assist facilities that have a Title V permit with their annual compliance certification, including meeting the requirements of the Michigan Air Emissions Reporting Systems (MAERS) program.


Managing, storing, and disposing hazardous and non-hazardous waste at a facility requires careful compliance to state and federal regulations.  Prism works with facilities to guide them through the waste regulations, including universal waste streams, hazardous waste contingency plans, and reporting requirements.

Pollution Prevention

Prism is experienced in developing Pollution Incident Prevention Plans (PIPP) and Spill Containment, Control, and Countermeasures Plans (SPCC). A facility that uses or stores oil, petroleum, or other chemicals in certain quantities that could potentially impact surface waters are required to have a PIPP and/or SPCC.  Pollution Prevention, including training employees on proper measures in preventing releases, helps reduce potential liability and protects the environment.
