  • (g) Periodic Inspections-Qualified personnel, who are familiar with industrial activities performed at the facility, shall conduct periodic inspections to determine the effectiveness of the Good Housekeeping, Spill Prevention and Response Measures, Erosion Control Measures, Maintenance Programs for Structural Controls, Best Management Practices, and Employee Training Program. Periodic inspections must be conducted on a frequency of once per quarter or monthly, unless otherwise specified in Part V of this permit, relating to Specific Requirements for industrial activities. The inspection must be documented through the use of a checklist that is developed to include each of the controls and measures that are evaluated. When revisions or additions to the SWP3 are recommended as result of inspections, a summary description of these proposed changes must be attached to the checklist. The summary must identify any necessary time frames required to the proposed changes. The periodic inspections checklists must be made readily available for inspection and review by authorized TCEQ personnel upon request.
