Industrial Pretreatment

Sampling an Interceptor The US Environmental Protection Agency and the State of Utah require publicly owned treatment works (POTW) to implement Industrial Pretreatment Programs in compliance with the requirements of 40 CFR ยง403 and UAC R317-8-8. The purpose of pretreatment programs is to identify and regulate businesses and industry that have the potential to discharge wastewater containing high strength wastes, toxic chemicals, and other hazardous materials. If not adequately controlled, industrial wastewater can damage sewer system infrastructure, threaten the safety of sewer workers, interfere with wastewater treatment processes, and cause pass-through of toxic industrial pollutants to receiving waters.

The South Valley Sewer District (SVSD) has established Wastewater Rules and Regulations which govern industrial dischargers. In accordance with these Rules and Regulations, the Industrial Pretreatment Department issues industrial wastewater discharge permits, requires dischargers to meet certain wastewater discharge limitations, and inspects industries and samples their wastewater to confirm compliance with permit requirements.
