Do environmental terms sometimes sound like a foreign language to you? If so, you’re not alone. Many businesses and communities have difficulty keeping up with the latest environmental lingo. This feature will cover some common environmental terms you may encounter.
Ohio’s construction storm water permitting program is designed to keep pollutants out of waters of the state. During a rain event, uncontrolled construction sites can contribute more sediment to streams than is deposited naturally over several years. Sediment and other pollutants from construction sites can also cause physical, chemical and biological harm to surface waters and aquatic habitat.
In 2016, Ohio held the Ohio’s Digging Up Ideas workshop, to help identify alternatives for dredged material and barriers for possible use. That workshop gave the State and others a lot of great ideas that Ohio, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, businesses and local stakeholders have vigorously pursued. Now, it’s time for us to report back on our progress and ask for more advice.
In April 2017, Ohio EPA launched the Ohio Materials Marketplace (OMM), a free online platform connecting businesses to recycling and reuse solutions for their waste and by-product challenges.
