Waste Water Treatment System

Waste Water Treatment:

 The term “Pre-treatment” means the treatment of waste water by commercial and industrial facilities to remove harmful pollutants before being discharged to a sewer system under the control of a publicly owned treatment works (POTW).

Objectives of the Waste water Treatment Program


By placing controls and/or limits on levels of certain pollutants in waste water discharged to your sewer system, you:

  • prevent interference with the operation of your wastewater treatment plant
  • prevent the introduction of pollutants that could pass through your wastewater treatment plant untreated and into the receiving body of water
  • improve opportunities for reuse or recycling of wastewater and sewage sludge
  • prevent the introduction of pollutants that could cause health or safety problems to the public or the environment.
