Article Title: New England EPA Audit Policy for Municipal Vehicle Maintenance Facilities

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is working to make municipalities aware of their Audit Policy. The Audit Policy encourages facilities, both public and private, to:

  • Conduct an environmental compliance audit; and,
  • Disclose and correct any violations that are found during the audit.

Anyone in the public or private sector can use EPAs Audit Policy at any facility at any time.

If violations are discovered during the audit and disclosed and corrected in a timely manner, the penalty for the violations is either eliminated or substantially reduced, if all conditions of the Audit Policy are satisfied.

Added Incentive for Municipal Vehicle Maintenance Facilities
EPA New England, in cooperation with the New England Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA), has developed an additional incentive program specifically for municipal vehicle maintenance facilities that is designed to increase environmental compliance, eliminate or minimize fines, and provide time to comply.

Municipal vehicle maintenance facilities participating in the program will be the lowest inspection priority for EPA New England from the sign-up date through September 30, 2002. This means that they are unlikely to be inspected during this period unless EPA receives a citizen complaint or believes an imminent environmental threat exists.

How to Sign Up

  • Submit a letter of intent to EPA that states that you intend to conduct an audit of your facility and disclose potential violations to EPA under the audit policy.
  • Identify a contact person at your facility.
  • Tell them which facility (ies) and include each facilitys street address.
  • Have the letter signed.
  • Send the letter to EPA:
    Nancy Barmakian
    Regional Municipal Coordinator
    US EPA
    1 Congress Street
    Boston, MA 02114
    (phone: 617-918-1016)
  • Send a copy to the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection:
    Paul T. Balavender
    Manager, Office of Enforcement
    Policy and Coordination
    Connecticut DEP
    79 Elm Street
    Hartford, CT 06106-5127
    (phone: 860-424-3049)

Deadlines
For municipal vehicle maintenance facilities to receive the added incentive of inspection relief that EPA New England is offering, some deadlines have been established:

  • Sign-up period is through October 1, 2001.
  • Send a letter of intent as soon as possible to sign up and become the lowest EPA inspection priority. The sooner EPA receives your letter, the sooner your vehicle maintenance facilities are covered.
  • Before October 1, 2002, ensure you have municipal approval and funds to conduct the audit.
  • If you decide not to participate for any reason after sending a letter of intent, send a letter to Nancy Barmakian, EPA New England, by October 1, 2001. If you decide not to participate, you will revert to normal inspection status and will be treated no better or worse than all other nonparticipants.
  • Complete your audit by December 31, 2001 or sooner.

Who Should Conduct the Audit?
The EPA Audit Policy specifies that the audit be an independent review of the facilitys compliance status. EPA New England encourages the use of a quali

fied third party, such as a professional auditor to conduct the audit.

What to Do with the Audit Report
You need not send EPA the completed audit report. The report is prepared to help you discover and correct any violations of environmental requirements.

Following Up with EPA
If violations are found during the audit, you must inform EPA of the violations in writing within 21 days of discovering the violation. They have a good form for making disclosures on their audit web site at http://es. epa.gov/oeca/ore/checklist.pdf. You must correct the violation within 60 days of discovering the violation. If you cannot correct the violation within 60 days, write to EPA to request an extension. If you inform EPA that no violations were discovered during the audit, your facility will remain a low inspection priority through September 30, 2002. If EPA does not hear from you within 60 days of completing your audit, your facility will return to normal inspection priority.

To Obtain the Audit Policy
Copies of the policy are available on the US EPAs Audit Policy web site at www.epa.gov/oeca/ore/apolguid.html or on the New England EPAs Compliance web site at www.epa.gov/region01/steward/ neeat/compliance.html.

Article Title: Bad Roads Are Significant Cost to Motorists

Driving on roads in need of repair costs American motorists $41.5 billion a year in additional vehicle operating costs or $222 per motorist, according to a recent report

The Road Information Program (TRIP), a nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, calculated the extra costs motorists pay to drive on roads in need of repair. The report, Extra Vehicle Operating Costs: What Motorists Pay to Drive on Roads in Need of Repair, was based on TRIPs analysis of Federal Highway Administration data. Nationwide, 28 percent of major roads in the country are in poor or mediocre condition and need repair.

Driving on roads in need of repair results in extra costs in areas such as additional tire wear, damage to shock absorbers and wheel alignment and extra fuel consumption, said William M. Wilkens, TRIPs Executive Director. These extra vehicle operating costs are hidden taxes that American motorists pay to drive on bad roads.

Because bad road conditions are significant factor in the amount each and every driver pays, increased investment in highway transportation infrastructure at state and federal levels to help make needed repairs would help reduce these extra costs.

Wilkins also pointed out that a recently released poll conducted for the Federal Highway Administration and the National Partnership for Highway Quality found significant public support for the use of more durable materials in the resurfacing of roads. The use of durable paving materials was the top choice cited by motorists when asked about preferred transportation improvements to combat traffic delays.

Its critical to make timely repairs of good quality, since studies have shown that it costs a lot less to repair roads in fair condition than roads in poor condition, Wilkens said. Also, the use of more durable paving materials can help extend the life of road surfaces.

One way to reduce repair needs and prevent pothole formation is to emphasize improved technology that can help make roads more durable and longer lasting. States with aggressive preventive maintenance programs can intercept roadway deterioration before potholes develop, said Bill Ballou, President of the Foundation for Pavement Preservation. Preventive maintenance must be done on highways in good condition. Its like changing the oil on a vehicle to make sure that major damage does not occur.

Ballou pointed out that when pavement in good condition declines to fair or poor condition, then more expensive treatments such as rehabilitation and reconstruction are necessary.

Strategic Work Zone Analysis Tools

As the nations highway infrastructure ages and more rehabilitation work is needed, work zones have become a daily fixture on our roads. Often, however, the user delays caused by work zones and the resulting costs to motorists, as well as the costs of mitigation strategies to lessen these delays, are not considered during the design and planning of projects. A new initiative of the Federal Highway Administration, known as the Strategic Work Zone Analysis Tools (SWAT) program, is out to change this.

Four tools are being developed as part of the initiative: an Expert System software program, a traffic impact analysis spreadsheet, a cost/ alternative analysis spreadsheet, and a detailed simulation model. Other tools that are out there dont encompass the impacts to areas surrounding work zones. With the Expert System, a user would enter data on the characteristics of the work zone, such as what type of highway improvement or repair work is being done and the duration. The program would then provide a list of possible mitigation strategies for reducing work zone delays and costs, such as re-timing an alternative routes traffic signals.

Version 1.0 of the traffic impact analysis spreadsheet, known as QuickZone, is the first tool developed through the SWAT program and is scheduled to be released by next spring. In the meantime, a prototype version is available for review and evaluation. A user need only have Microsoft Excel 97 or higher running on a Windows-based PC to use the QuickZone application. The evaluators include a steering committee composed of states and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), among others.

A definite date has not yet been set for the release of the Expert System software and the simulation model. The SWAT program is expected to run through 2004.

Article Title: QuickZone

QuickZone will provide a general and quick work zone traffic impact analysis capability. This tool will estimate the traffic impacts for various work zone mitigation strategies and estimate user delay and delay costs associated with those impacts. For example, if a highway agency was widening a lane of traffic, QuickZone could estimate the impacts of doing work at night instead of during the day or diverting the traffic to one road versus another road during different phases of the construction. The user delay can be estimated for both an average day of work and for the whole

life cycle of construction.

The simulation model, meanwhile, would be used in conjunction with QuickZone to more precisely estimate the impacts of specific work zone strategies

and the effectiveness of mitigation techniques.

FHWAs Operations and Intelligent Transportation Systems Research Team has initiated the beta-testing of QuickZone, which was developed in cooperation with Mitretek Systems. Your help is sought in assessing this software in terms of easeof- use, user interface, presentation of outputs, visual display of data, and overall functionality.

Motivation
In all but a few high-visibility freeway construction and refurbishment projects, the soft cost of traveler delay is typically not considered when key decisions about project staging and duration are made. The 1998 FHWA report Meeting the Customers Needs for Mobility and Safety During Construction and Maintenance Operations identifies this issue and recommends the development of an analytical tool (QuickZone) for quick and flexible estimation of work zone delay in all four phases of the project development process (policy, planning, design and operations).

Approach
The QuickZone concept is to provide an easy-to-use, easy-to-learn tool that utilizes software tools that are familiar to the target user base. FHWAs current approach is to develop QuickZone as a Microsoft Excel Workbook application. The prospective QuickZone analyst need only have Excel 97 or higher running on a Windows-based PC with minimal memory and processing speed requirements. The overall goal in terms of ease-of-use is less than one hour to input and check a QuickZone network, and less than three minutes to analyze the data and produce delay profiles over the project duration.

Purpose
The primary functions of QuickZone are:

  • Quantification of corridor delay resulting from capacity decreases in work zones.
  • Identification of delay impacts of alternative project phasing plans.
  • Supporting tradeoff analyses between construction costs and delay costs.
  • Examination of impacts of construction staging, by:
    • location along mainline
    • time-of-day (peak vs. off-peak)
    • season (summer vs. winter)
  • Assessment of travel demand measures and other delay mitigation strategies.
  • Allowing the establishment of work completion incentives.

Target Users
The target users of QuickZone are state and local traffic construction, operations, and planning staff, and construction contractors. The tool is suitable for application in both urban and inter-urban settings.

Article Title: Local Governments Face New Accounting Rules

The rules of governmental accounting are changing. As state and local governments are required to adopt accounting practices similar to those used in the private sector, transportation administrators face the task of bringing their financial reports into compliance with the new standards established by the Government Accounting Standards Boardbefore time runs out.

State and local governments have traditionally reported their infrastructure assets (roads, bridges, dams, vehicles, etc.) according to the cash accounting method: the cost of the infrastructure investment appears on the agencys financial reports the year in which its cost was incurred. Under this system, the value of existing physical assets is not reported in subsequent years.

But according to new reporting requirements known as GASB 34, governments must begin to report such assets using accrual accounting methods similar to those used in the private sectortaking into account the monetary value of assets throughout their life spans and factoring in depreciation, in the same way a business would account for the value of the buildings and machines it owns.

Benefits of GASB 34
Although the new reporting system will make government financial information more comprehensible to private citizens, GASB 34 will also help businesses and financial institutions obtain a clearer picture of government finances. GASB 34 will therefore be an important factor in dealing with creditors and investors, and governments not in compliance will be at a distinct disadvantage.

Another important advantage of capitalizing infrastructure assets in compliance with GASB 34 is likely to be seen when it comes time to request public funding. The new accounting system will make it easier for the general public to understand that the transportation system represents an investment in the communitys future, so allowing infrastructure to degrade amounts to saddling future generations with a deficiency theyll have to pay. In countries where similar accounting practices are required, the stewardship argument has been very effective in gathering public support for funding even during periods of economic recession.

Whats Required?
GASB 34 requires two types of financial reporting: prospective and retroactive. Prospective reporting simply requires agencies to report the value of newly acquired or constructed assets. Four year later, when retroactive reporting requirements go into effect, agencies will be required to determine values for their preexisting assets (constructed or significantly improved since 1980) and report them as well.

These reporting requirements will take effect in phases, beginning with the largest governmental entities, so the fiscal year in which reporting begins will depend on your agencys total annual revenues for the fiscal year ending after June 15, 1999. Prospective reporting requirements will take effect fiscal year beginning after June 15, 2001 for large-sized governments ($100 million or more in revenues); fiscal year beginning after June 15, 2002 for medium-sized governments (at least $10 million, but less than $100 million in revenues); and, fiscal year beginning after June 15, 2003 for small-sized governments (less than $10 million in revenues). Retroactive reporting requirements will take effect four years after prospective reporting requirements.

There are two methods available for assessing the value of transportation infrastructure: the depreciation approach and a modified approach. The relatively simple depreciation approach applies the perpetual inventory method of accounting to depreciate asset value based on historical costs. The more complicated modified approach, detailed in GASB 34, applies asset management techniques. Agencies are free to choose either method; determining which method is right for your agency will involve a number of factors including your internal organization and past accounting practices.

Depending on your agencys unique situation, implementing GASB 34 may be relatively simple or represent a substantial unfunded mandate. However, GASB 34 is not a one size fits all regulation, and agencies may take advantage of the built-in flexibility in reporting to develop a strategy for meeting the new reporting requirements.

You can access extensive information on GASB 34 at the GASB web site: accounting.rutgers.edu/raw/gasb.

Green Signal Heads
The Department of Transportation has changed its requirements for the color for signal heads from yellow heads and black faces to a dark green (Color No. 14056, Federal Standard No. 595). This change is effective immediately on all new signal installations. Existing yellow heads will remain until it is necessary to replace them for reasons other than change of color. The color green has been the standard color along the Merritt Parkway for aesthetic reasons. The dark face has been used to improve the contrast between the signal face and the indication color. The Department prefers to stock one color signal head.

All-Red Clearances
The Traffic Engineering Division has changed its philosophy with respect to determining all-red clearance intervals on state highways. The new method is contained in the Divisions recently revised Traffic Signal Design Manual, which is anticipated to be published in late spring 2001 and will be available from the Document Reproduction Office at Pascone Place in Newington. It was felt that the current methodology, which was primarily based on the ITE formula, resulted in all-red clearance intervals which were too long.
