Established by Section 104(g)(1) of the Federal Clean Water Act, the three Compliance Assistance Unit (CAU) members help to bring wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) facilities into compliance and/or to maintain compliance. Our goal is to improve the water quality of our streams, rivers, and lakes by assisting WWTPs that need help in meeting their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits.
The CAU seldom works without total commitment from community officials. In order to achieve success, we need the same level of commitment from everyone involved: village administrators, superintendents, plant operators, etc.
By utilizing the services of the CAU, many communities have saved money and are operating in compliance at the same time. In many cases, the cost for compliance is also more economical than paying a penalty for noncompliance. Implementing preventive maintenance programs and identifying energy savings are the methods most used to reach a cost-effective end result.
If you are in need of our assistance or have any questions, please contact Jon Bernstein at (614) 644-3715 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
