In the January 2, 2017 edition of Auto News, Richard Truett posted a story about the demand for auto body workers in Columbus, OH:  “On Monster, the giant national career website, more than 1,000 auto dealers, independent body shops, hot-rod shops and other businesses are running help wanted ads for body-shop technicians. There’s a nationwide shortage of skilled body repair technicians, painters and auto body prep experts that rivals the shortage of service department repair technicians. To help offset the ongoing shortage of body-shop techs, the Collision Repair Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Hoffman Estates, Ill., is kicking off its second year of nationwide career fairs aimed at attracting high school and college students.

The fairs, staffed by new-car dealers, body-shop supply companies, independent body shops and suppliers, are scheduled for 14 major cities starting early next month. More fairs are scheduled for the fall. In 2016, each event attracted roughly 200 students, said Brandon Eckenrode, the foundation’s development director. At the one-day fairs, held at schools, training facilities, hotels and other locations, students have the opportunity to meet with potential employers, including body-shop managers, who explain the career path from school to work.

Many students, Eckenrode said, are surprised to learn how much they can make if they become experts at painting cars. “I give students a pep talk when I meet them before they enter the fair and tell them there are people who paint cars that easily make over six figures. But that’s not where you are going to start,” Eckenrode said. Like technician trainees who start out doing menial work such as oil changes and tire rotations, collision-repair students also begin their careers performing jobs that don’t require specialized training, such as prep work that requires removing trim and broken components and cleaning the outside of the vehicle to get it ready for body repairs. In these jobs, they learn how to use tools and how to follow proper procedures.

Although attendance at the fairs has been strong — one held in November in Columbus, Ohio, drew nearly 400 students — the foundation also works with schools in markets it doesn’t serve. “We reach out to schools and ask that they refer any student looking for full-time work. We gather their information and have them create a student resume, which we use to build a database. Then we distribute that to employers,” Eckenrode said.  The foundation doesn’t yet have firm data on the number of students who have found collision-repair jobs through the fairs, but Eckenrode says they are working.  “Part of the fun of my job is that I have met students at 10 a.m. who are unemployed and they walk out at 2 p.m. with several job offers because of the need that is out there.” The full story is available here.

The US Environmental Protection Agency tells us the following about these types of wells. “What is a motor vehicle waste disposal well? A motor vehicle waste disposal well (MVWDW) is a shallow disposal system that receives fluids from vehicle repair or maintenance activities in shops. MVWDW’s are regulated as Class V injection wells. Typical MVWDW’s are floor drains or sinks in service areas that connect to a septic system or dry well. However, any underground system that receives such waste is considered to be a MVWDW. For example, cesspools, catch-basins, and sink holes are considered MVWDW’s if they receive motor vehicle waste.

During normal vehicle repair and maintenance, fluids such as engine oil or solvents may drip or spill into floor drains or sinks in service areas. Motor vehicle wastes include:

  • Engine oil
  • Transmission fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Antifreeze
  • Solvents
  • Degreasers

If you dispose of these fluids through a MVWDW, they may contaminate ground water. Therefore, EPA maintains regulations regarding these in efforts to avoid water contamination. What are the requirements for closing a MVWDW? If you must close your well, you must do so in a way that prevents contamination of ground water. Contact your permitting authority to find out if there are any additional requirements. In closing your well, write to your permitting authority at least 30 days before. First, ask what information you must provide; next, you may be asked to fill out a pre-closure notification form or letter saying you plan to close the well.

Permanently plug or otherwise close the well in a way that is approved by the permitting authority and that ensures ground water is protected. Dispose of or manage any soil, gravel, sludge, liquids, or other materials removed from your well or the area around the well according to all federal, state & local requirements. Your permitting authority may have additional requirements for well closure. Before closing your well, contact the authority for guidance. It is your responsibility to find out the requirements.” The EPA’s full report is available at this link.
