" EPA Hurricane Response "

1) EPA Hurricane Response

Follow this topic at the EPA website: "Evaluating air quality is one of EPA’s top priorities during the recovery of the Gulf Coast region. Damage from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and cleanup/restoration activities may cause releases of air toxics and other air pollutants in the damaged areas. Such emissions could potentially affect downwind areas. Sources of this air pollution include: spills of volatile chemicals; start-up releases or leaks from industrial plants; dust from building demolition and debris transport; contaminated sediments that can be resuspended as dust, and smoke from open burning of debris."

2) Air PErmit PEople

Click Here !

ActiveSET.org supports a state-by-state Directory of registered PE's that can sign air permit applications for out-of-state PE's. If you encounter this regularly and have to hunt down a PE in another state that can sign for your projects visit the Air PErmit PEople section on ActiveSET.org.

Some states require licensed Professional Engineers to maintain an "ACTIVE" status with their Registration Board in order to offer or provide any type of engineering services. Check with your state's Registration Board for a P.E.'s "ACTIVE" status or if it is mandatory a P.E. (not an "engineering consultant") is to provide air permitting services in your state.

If you are a registered P.E. that prepares/files/signs/revises industrial air permits, you can place a free listing (logo included) on the Air PErmit PEople section Click Here
