Is used oil handling and storage nothing new to you? Do you know the storage and handling practices for other chemicals? What about universal and electronic wastes. 

For municipalities that have been designated a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), we have two resources to help prepare you for the upcoming Municipal Operations and Good Housekeeping Audit by IDEM.
