08/12/2008The Julie Rogers "Gift of Life" ProgramRegina RogersThe program is an appropriate SEP because it pursues goals endorsed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which include securing “public health protection improvements beyond those achieved by bringing the violators into compliance” (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2007). The proposed SEP provides a clear environmental benefit by improving and reducing the risk of cancer to the communities in and around the regulated entities.The “Gift of Life” is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization located in Beaumont, Texas, and serving all of Southeast Texas. The agency is dedicated to providing free mammograms and prostate cancer screenings with access to follow-up treatment for nearly 2,000 medically underserved men and women each year; a tobacco prevention and cessation program (“Don’t Smoke Your Life Away”), which targets adults and children; and an extensive educational outreach initiative that annually reaches more than 16,000 people and focuses on breast, prostate, testicular, and lung cancer. The “Gift of Life” proposes an SEP that would enable regulated entities facing civil enforcement penalties to contribute $600,000 for the expansion of its screening and public education efforts, and $400,000 towards the acquisition of a facility to house the agency.$600,000 for the expansion of screening and public education programs; $400,000 for the acquisition of a building.

08/30/2007Public school renewable energy projects for environmental justiceSouthwest Workers UnionSan Antonio’s South and East sides suffer disproportionately from pollution from energy-generating plants at Calaveras Lake. Asthma rates in these communities exceed those in other areas of San Antonio. The city utility was recently granted a permit to build a third coal-fired power plant at this site. This project would fund renewable energy projects (solar or wind) at a local public school or schools in San Antonio Independent School District to help increase energy independence and reduce reliance on the coal and gas plants. It would serve as a model for students, other schools and the City on a larger scale of renewable energy generation projects that do not create smog, air pollution, and greenhouse gas pollution. $250,000
08/30/2007Leon Creek remediation and restorationSouthwest Workers UnionAnnual testing by the Air Force Real Property Agency in association with Kelly Air Force Base (AFB) demonstrates significant chemical contamination in Leon Creek surface water, sediment and fish. Fish from the Creek, which flows through western San Antonio, are eaten by the surrounding community. The community also accesses the creek for swimming and recreation. Contaminants include PCBs, DDT, DDE, and DDD, heavy metals, and volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds including chlorinated solvents. This project would assess and execute viable remediation measures that would once again make the creek safe for the community. This would include determining and eliminating sources of new contamination entering the Creek (known sources are seeps and outfalls from hazardous waste landfills and other sites on Lackland AFB and the former Kelly AFB). It would also include dredging contaminated sediments. $1,000,000

08/22/2006Lead Paint Notification Compliance SoftwareMark SerioInsures Compliance with EPA Section X Form 1018 Tenant Notification RequirementsThe CONNOR Compliance Systems (CCS) is an automated, web-based environmental compliance software that stores, manages and reports your environmental data. It is specifically designed to take the human error out of tenant lead paint notifications (Form 1018) at the time of lease signing. CCS takes all of the lead paint report information for your property and saves it to be automatically downloaded into a pre-printed Form 1018 that is electronically signed, stored and printed for your tenant and property manager. New changes in lead paint conditions and locations are electronically captured into the system so that current conditions are always reported. When the property manager prints a lease, CCS grabs all the applicable Lead Paint Data for the specific unit and preprints the form. The system also assures that the forms questions are answered and signatures are present before it allows the property manager to print out the form. It also notifies by e-mail managers and supervisors if a property has been leased without a Form 1018 being completed for the unit. It does this by querying the multifamily rental housings existing Property Management Software on a daily basis for leased units that day and reports the units that do not have a Form 1018 completed. CCS is easy to access as it is web-based and can be tied directly in to your existing software. It is also very reasonably priced, extremely secure and the database can be stored with you or CONNOR’s multiple and redundant servers. $1,500.00 per property first year, $500.00 per property subsequent years.
