The Damages of Industrial Waste
Some industries, due to their manufacturing process, or to the nature of their final product, represent potential threats to our city sewer system. The industrial waste can damage infrastructure, expose personnel to hazardous chemicals, or interfere with treatment plant operation.
As a result, these industries must pre-treat their waste stream prior to releasing it to the city sewer system in order to prevent such negative effects.
The Industrial Pretreatment Section of Environmental Compliance works to assure that these pretreatment actions are taken and are effective. Learn more about pretreatment.
