The Environmental Self-Audit for Campus-Based Organizations: A Quick and Easy Guide to Environmental Compliance.
New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation, Albany.
This guide is intended to help public and not-for-profit campus-based organizations in New York State to comply with local, state, and federal environmental regulations. The environmental self-audit serves as a basic diagnostic tool for campus-based organizations (centralized schools, colleges/universities, correctional facilities, mental health institutions, etc.) to evaluate possible compliance problems relating to air, water, land use, solid waste, and hazardous materials. Included is information for the organization that is about to begin operations, for the facility that has never examined its environmental health before, and for the organization that is about to move or expand. This self-audit should serve as a preliminary self-diagnostic tool to identify possible environmental compliance problems in the regulatory categories of air, water, land use, petroleum and chemical storage tanks,solid waste, and hazardous materials.
