Upcoming Deadlines...

The Ohio general industrial storm water NPDES permit will be renewed in early 2017. Ohio EPA will send a notice to currently permitted facilities to submit the renewal NOI and application fee. I will remind my clients when the permit is renewed.

20th of each month, monthly eDMR are due!

11/15:   If you have a fairly new air PTIO and opted for the seasonal reporting period, you may have a PER due.  These reports are automatically created in eBusiness Center or should be mailed to you if your company is non-Title V. Synthetic Minor facilities are required to use eBusiness Center: Air Services to submit these reports.  These reports are not applicable to Title V facilities.

Recent Deadlines...

9/30:  Ohio Landfill License Renewal is due. This service is available via eBiz - DMWM Solid Waste/C&DD Facility Licensing.

10/31: The third quarter air permit deviation reports are due.  If you have a PER, check your permit-- you may still have a quarterly report due!
