Industry Outreach

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description Marinas - Pollution Prevention staff developed an outreach program for the marina industry, including a Pollution Prevention Self Assessment and Compliance Manual. Staff held five marina workshops statewide in the beginning of 2002. A marina video featuring pollution prevention measures used at NYS marinas was developed. Five additional workshops were held in the fall of 2002.

State Agency Workshops - Pollution Prevention staff held five pollution prevention workshops in March 2002 for state agencies with agendas focused on pollution prevention measures, environmental compliance issues and environmental management systems.

Pulp and Paper Industry - The Pollution Prevention Unit has drafted a Compliance and Self Assessment manual for the pulp and paper industry.

Hospitals - Staff in conjunction with the New York State Department of Health conducted six seminars to provide technical information on pollution prevention activities and methods to the health care industry. In addition, the host hospital provided a facility tour to demonstrate the successful implementation of P2 at the facility. Follow-up surveys are being conducted to evaluate the impact of the seminar on attendees and to see if they would like to participate in a follow-up site visit to discuss P2 opportunities at their facility. A Task Force is also being put together to evaluate waste management rules, regulations, and policies that impact health care facilities and determining the limitations and barriers that are preventing health care facilities from improving environmental performance.
