  • Improper storage of hazardous materials (i.e., a lack of secondary containment basins around storage areas)
  • Discharge of process or waste liquids to anywhere that is not designed or capable of handling these fluids
  • Sediments and other debris that washes off construction sites during rain events may clog fish gills, damage fish habitat, and block the light needed for plants to survive.
