Because our publicly-owned Wastewater Treatment Plant is not specifically designed to treat the substances produced in certain industrial environments, Troy requires some industrial businesses to participate in a waste water pre-treatment program, as mandated under the federal Clean Water Act and U.S. EPA.
Does my businesses need to participate in the wastewater pre-treatment program?
Your business needs to participate in the pre-treatment program if your industrial business:
Discharges an average of 25,000 gallons per day or more of process wastewater to the sanitary sewer.
Has the potential of discharging process wastewater that has pH values of less than 6 S.U. or greater than 11 S.U.
Is regulated by 40 CFR Parts 401-471.
Has been designated by the City as a business with reasonable potential for adversely affecting the operation of the sewer collection system or treatment plant, or violating any pre-treatment requirement.
