Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--May 6, 2013, to May 10, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed stormwater, mercury spills, and universal wastes.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.


Stormwater enforcement is a joint effort--As the result of a federal/state effort, a New Hampshire concrete producer will pay a $135,000 civil penalty and implement a compliance program to resolve numerous stormwater violations.

A quick look at EPA's stormwater penalties--Here's a chart that provides a quick review of stormwater penalties under environmental laws and regulations.

How to safely clean up mercury spills --Make sure to take all mercury spills seriously. When liquid mercury is spilled, it forms droplets that can accumulate in very small spaces and then emit vapors into the air. Mercury vapor in the air is odorless, colorless, and very toxic.

You had a mercury spill? Stop! and check out what NOT to do.--In the event of a mercury spill, there are steps to take and things to defintitely NOT do. See what EPA recommends.

Can you avoid universal waste accumulation requirements?--Enviro.BLR.com® subscribers can submit questions to BLR® subject matter experts as part of their subscription. We often get questions on different universal waste issues. Here’s an FAQ on fluorescent bulb disposal.
