  4. For more information or to schedule an interview: Contact: Robert Hinderliter Environmental Chairman PWNA & ***** 817-529-6601; Cell: 817-366-3041 robert.hinderliter@powerwash.com August 15, 2011 Mobile Power Washing Associations Unite to Develop A Best Management Practices Model, Workshop and Ordinance For Immediate Release – The Power Washers of North America (www.pwna.org) and United Association of Mobile Contract Cleaners (www.*****.org ) have joined together to develop a model cosmetic mobile power washing best management practices (BMPs), workshop, and ordinance based on the EPA’s model ordinance. PWNA is making this information available free to regulation authorities for use in developing their own models to comply with their MS4 NPDES permits for Phase I and Phase II. “The BMPs and model workshop are based on over 15 years of enforcement history, working with regulators around the country,” said Robert Hinderliter, Environmental Chairman for the PWNA and *****. “We have placed emphasis on being reasonable, rational, and logical, which has proven to result in the highest level of compliance – meaning minimum contaminates in the storm drains – and with almost no cost or enforcement effort, a very important element in this time of limited budgets.” A CD/DVD is now available from Power Washers of North America. The ordinance can be downloaded from www.pwna.org, www.*****.org, or by email request to robert.hinderliter@powerwash.com.

  6. All went well in Houston. I was onsite with Robert and Michael Hinderliter, and the PWNA videotaped the entire event again (PWNA has videotaped every Houston Workshop). I was told by other participants, as well by Michael and Robert, that it was a much smaller turnout then the most recent past meeting. There were some very good specific questions asked from the audience and a majority of those questions were answered with specifics from the city officials. The overall feeling from the audience that I spoke to felt that the city was much more open to working with contractors to ensure everyone is on the same page and in compliance with discharge concerns on customer’s property and city owned property than in past meetings. I feel that the overall outcome of the meeting was very positive and I am happy to see that Houston is more receptive to work with and educate the power wash contractors to ensure that everything is in compliance and not forcing needs of additional equipment and permits to be in compliance, as was the direction we felt it was heading from past City of Houston meetings. Thank You Houston. I’m very happy to be a part of creating environmental awareness and education for all fellow contractors to be learning from and working with today, and tomorrow. Eric Clark PWNA President
