Compliance Assistance Offers Workshops for Manufacturers, Hazardous Waste and Clean Water Act

The Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA) is hosting a series of Environmental Assistance Workshops with the goal of assisting and educating regulated facilities so they understand and can comply with environmental regulations.

Speakers from the Division of Water, Division of Waste Management and Division of Compliance Assistance will be highlighting common permits and authorizations that are typically issued by the Department for Environmental Protection for industrial and manufacturing facilities.

This one-day, interactive workshop will be divided into three sessions. The first session will be geared toward air permitting by helping those new to air permitting understand the basics, and will walk through the application process step-by-step.

The second will help participants understand hazardous waste regulations governing everything from aerosol cans to used oil, light bulbs and ballasts, lawn care chemicals and others, and will show regulated entities how to comply with those regulations.

The day will finish by focusing on various permits issued under the Clean Water Act, including industrial and construction stormwater permits, and how to comply. The audience will also be made aware of the common violations seen by each division and how to avoid a notice of violation. Please see the full postcard and agenda for additional details.

This introductory-level workshop will be beneficial for environmental or facility managers, small business owners, consultants, educational institutions, health and safety professionals, economic development professionals or anyone who needs an overview of environmental permits.

The first workshop will be held in Frankfort, Ky. on March 2, and there will be a second opportunity to attend in Princeton, Ky. on March 17. The cost of attendance will be $80 for general admission and $40 for KY EXCEL members. To register for this event, please visit The registration periods end on Feb. 29 and March 14, respectively.
