Wessler interviewed Michele Meyer with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) about Storm Water Quality Control Plans (SWQCPs), which are required for contractors to prepare and implement for INDOT construction projects.

It wasn’t long ago that a simple bar of soap was regarded as the be-all and end-all solution to discourage children from using four-letter words, at least in the company of adults. If you have ever had the privilege of experiencing that sharp, bitter taste of a fresh bar of Irish Spring, then you know that nothing ever quite tastes the same again. Candy never tastes quite as sweet, soda never quite as fizzy and brushing your teeth becomes a much desired activity. One may conclude that a simple bar of soap is an effective means of eliminating four-letter words from a child’s vocabulary.
IDEM will only be accepting electronic reports come the end of 2016. Your wastewater treatment plant's paper reports will soon be a thing of the past. Wessler is here to help make this transition easier.

“IDEM will not accept paper DMRs/MROs/MMRs after the end of 2016. The last paper DMRs that can be submitted will be for November 2016. NetDMR will be required for all DMRs/MROs/MMRs beginning with the December 2016 reports.” - IDEM
