Pretreatment Industrial Wastewater
discharged to the City sewer system is regulated by the City Municipal Code. Industrial users
who propose to discharge industrial wastewater into the
sewer system must complete and submit an application with application fee for a wastewater
The application review usually takes 30-45 days,
depending on the type of wastewater to be discharged, after
receipt of the completed application. If the proposed discharge
is acceptable and a permit is required, the user will be
issued a permit with limits of discharge specified.
Periodically, the local limits for regulated
pollutants are re-evaluated when there are changes on the
treatment processes due to upgrade/expansion projects, users
wastewater characteristics, or Federal, State or local regulatory
requirements. The revised limits will be reviewed by the
EPA and State Regional Water Resources Control Board, and
adopted by the City Councils.
Our Pretreatment Staff monitors
industries in accordance with Federal and State requirements
to prevent the discharge of prohibited pollutants to the sewer
