Elim Industries is a leader in the development and implementation of regulatory strategies as specified by Texas Permits TXR050000 and TXR150000.  Elim Industries fully understands the exemptions some sites are afforded and desires to see these used. Our goal is to provide a clear concise interpretation of the regulations and prepare simple straightforward Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans and accompanying materials that meet the ever changing demands of the facility while still meeting the present requirements of local, state and national environmental laws.



  Track Record  

Elim Industries track record is proven. We have successfully obtained TPDES discharge, city, as well as handling permits for both the industrial and construction sectors of business.  Elim Industries continues to operate only in the stormwater industry which means we are biasly focused on the ever changing requirements demanded by these regulations and how they are effecting the local government and our clients.




Our bias focus keeps us in contact with state, county, and city enforcement entities while working for our clients.  This allows us to communicate required changes during each inspection and inform clients of how trends can affect their operation.  Elim Industries performs periodical inspections, delivers reports, maintains and upkeeps the SWPPP, checks for sampling attainment, and provides training during these inspections.




Because our strategies and solutions work we have achieved and continue to nurture a productive relationship with the regulatory community at the federal, state, and local levels resulting in cost savings for our clients.
