Crowley Liner Services, Inc. (Crowley) hired ANAMAR to update the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for their Port Everglades Terminal in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and to review their stormwater related procedures and equipment there.
Crowley Liner Services, Inc. (Crowley) Port Everglades Terminal is used as a staging terminal for containerized cargo that is shipped into and out of the United States. Containers are received at the facility both by truck and by lift on/lift off (Lo/Lo) and roll on/roll off (Ro/Ro) vessels. Containers are staged at the terminal pending either loading onto a vessel or awaiting pickup by truck. The facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Employees number 150 to 200 depending on activities. ANAMAR visually inspected, photographed, and mapped the locations of all stormwater drains and outfalls, stormwater controls, and spill response equipment at this facility during a site inspection.
ANAMAR generated a SWPPP for Crowley that follows current (2015) guidance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for a Multi-sector General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity. The updated SWPPP produced by ANAMAR included all pertinent information on stormwater pollution protection, and a list of physical locations and coordinates for the 31 stormwater drains and 4 outfalls at the Port Everglades Terminal.
