Plus, our clients enjoy the protection and peace of mind provided by our guarantee to pay any EPA fine resulting from an RMP compliance violation caused by an error or omission by MunicipalH2O during the term of our services, subject to the Compliance Guarantee Requirements.

Risk Management Program Regulation Overview

Would you pass an inspection today without any fines? How does your existing RMP compare to the most current EPA regulations?

For various reasons, some individual states have implemented state specific RMP requirements in addition to the federal requirements for some key areas. To further complicate matters, some states are designated as OSHA-delegated states and others are designated as EPA-delegated states, each with their own unique thresholds and compliance requirements. Water and wastewater treatment operators must be knowledgeable about the specific compliance requirements applicable to their facility.

EPA and/or state authorities routinely conduct inspections of facilities that must comply with RMP regulations to ensure adherence to program requirements. If deficiencies in the implementation of the RMP program are observed, these inspections may result in a variety of enforcement actions and financial penalties, which can exceed $30,000 per day per violation.
