Apex has the manpower it takes to see site activities through from start to finish. Apex is committed to complying with all applicable state and federal regulations while keeping our client the number one priority. Apex professionals include state-registered geologists, certified environmental managers, registered professional engineers, registered environmental assessors, certified asbestos inspectors and management planners, and groundwater scientists certified to work in California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.
Apex works with all California Regional Water Quality Control Boards in arriving at agreements regarding site management and closure options. Apex has worked with California and Southwest clients utilizing The Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund Act of 1989 for the last 15 years. The Fund was created by the California Legislature, and is administered by the California State Water Resources Control Board, to provide a means for petroleum underground storage tanks (UST) owners and operators to meet the federal and state requirements. The Fund also assists a large number of small businesses and individuals by providing reimbursement for unexpected and catastrophic expenses associated with the cleanup of leaking petroleum USTs. The Fund also provides money to the Regional Water Quality Control Boards and local regulatory agencies to abate emergency situations or to cleanup abandoned sites that pose a threat to human health, safety, and the environment, as a result of a petroleum release from a UST.
Do you have a site that does not qualify for conventional government cleanup funding and is located in California? SCAP could be an option for you.
What is SCAP?
Site Cleanup Subaccount Program
What projects are eligible?
Any project that harms or threatens to harm human health, safety, and the environment from surface water or groundwater contamination; human-made contaminants; projects that lack financial resources otherwise.
What sorts of projects are included?
Projects may include site characterization, source identification, or implementation of cleanup.
How does the program decide who to fund?
The program prioritizes projects as follows: significant threat to human health or the environment; impact to disadvantaged or small communities; cost versus environmental benefit of the project; lack of alternate available funding; other state water board considerations.
How much can the program grant?
There are no funding request limits, and there are no cost match requirements from the owner of the site.
If you have a site or a program in California that harms or threatens to harm human health, safety, and the environment due to surface or groundwater contamination or vapor intrusion, and don’t qualify for alternate funding, contact us today to discuss eligibility and funding for your site through SCAP.
