The term “pretreatment” means the treatment of wastewater by commercial and industrial facilities to remove harmful pollutants before being discharged to a sewer system.

Objectives Of Pretreatment

By placing controls and/or limits on levels of certain pollutants in wastewater 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 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
