SCRC Audio Town Hall Meeting April 1

“SURVIVING AN EPA AUDIT AND LIVING TO TELL ABOUT IT”

For years, the Environmental Protection Agency has been preparing cities, large, small, or rural, as well as counties, for audits of various program requirements, mandates, and so on.

Imagine the feelings of shock, fear, and unrest in the Town of Greece, New York, when the EPA notified them of a Stormwater Regulatory Compliance Audit to measure the city’s compliance with their NYSDEC permit. While we each strive to operate all our programs according to the guidelines and regulations imposed on us by federal agencies, often an audit is an unknown quantity and the thought of it makes grown men shake in their work boots.

The Town of Greece prepared for just such an audit and came through it successfully. John Gauthier, Associate Engineer for the Town, will share their experiences and lessons learned in an effort to prepare others who may be facing a similar undertaking.

Join us on for this firsthand account of how to survive an EPA audit on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific, 10 Mountain, 11:00 a.m. Central daylight, and 12 Noon Eastern time.
