Use the AGC-Supported CICA Center to
Meet All of Your Environmental Services Needs
HAVE YOU EXPLORED THE Construction Industry Compliance

Assistance (CICA) Center yet? The AGC-supported CICA Center
is a free online resource on environmental compliance and sustainability that is open to the entire U.S. construction industry.
The Center is a virtual clearinghouse of resources on the top
rules you will need to keep track of during your construction
projects. Bookmark www.cicacenter.org in your web browser and
make it your first stop for information on air emissions, diesel
engines, dredge and fill permits, energy codes, endangered
species, environmental management systems, green, lead-based
paint, recycling, resilience, solid/hazardous waste, spill prevention and controls, stormwater, sustainability and wetlands.
Here are the top five reasons to explore CICA Center website:
* Learn which state and federal environmental regulations
apply to your project;
* Identify which environmental permits you need and where
and how to get them;
* Locate and download specific state and federal regulations
and permit application forms;
* Connect with regulators and experts who can help you understand environmental rules and how to comply;
* Track the latest construction-specific news on key environmental actions, deadlines, requirements and initiatives.
The CICA Center serves as a great starting point to plan for and
manage environmental compliance across the board. In addition
to compliance summaries and permitting information, the site
features an easily searchable library, a compliance summary
tool and an environmental services directory. The center also
provides a toolkit for developing an environmental management
system (EMS) or program for your company. Use the site's EMS
toolkit to evaluate your company's need for an environmental
program, how comprehensive that program will need to be and
how to start putting one in place for your company.
The stormwater information on the CICA Center is one of the
most frequently accessed resources on the website. Construction
professionals can use this resource to research stormwater
requirements by state, hone their project's stormwater pollution
prevention plan, identify best management practices (BMP) or
find a trainer and other stormwater professionals. In addition,
the user-friendly format of the information lends itself to easy
adaption as a toolbox talk - such as to highlight a specific BMP
that may be problematic on a project.
The CICA Center is brought to you by AGC of America and the
National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS). AGC also
appreciates the generosity of StormwaterONE as CICA's 2017
exclusive platinum level supporter. Originally launched by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the mid-2000s,
AGC has been involved with the center since the start. Most
