P2 at Automotive Service Facilities

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The CT DEP partnered with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in 2002 to identify P2 and compliance assistance opportunities at the automotive service facilities in the state. DEP staff conducted a multi-media training session on environmental requirements for 21 DMV inspectors in September 2002. The training provided DMV inspectors with an environmental compliance checklist and a brochure on P2 opportunities that they are using when they inspect these facilities. The DMV will forward all completed environmental checklists to the DEP Office of Pollution Prevention for follow-up with P2 and compliance assistance.

In Connecticut, the DMV licenses 5200 facilities in the state, including auto body and repair shops, used and new vehicle dealerships, junkyards (auto dismantlers), towing companies, and some vocational-technical schools. The DMV inspects new facilities and those where there is a change in ownership, about 550 per year. In addition, they respond to about 5000 complaints annually, of which they inspect about 1250 or 40 percent. This partnership between DMV and DEP will result in greater efficiencies for the two state agencies and an improved environment for Connecticut communities.
