Pollution Prevention for Industrial Sites
MassDEP Pollution Prevention brochure taylored for Industrial Sites located in the Town of Danvers
Contaminated stormwater is a source of pollutants in many of our ponds, lakes, rivers and streams.
Storm drains carry runoff from streets, urban centers, and industrial sites, and
open spaces into streams, creeks, and rivers.
Industrial operations are only one contributor to this problem, but they are known to be a source of heavy metals,
oily wastes, and other substances.
Reducing or eliminating the exposure of industrial operations to rainfall and runoff is a proven way to reduce pollution into our surface waters.
