Controlling toxins at their source is the best method of keeping pollutants out of the local water environment. Our treatment plant is not designed to remove chemicals and metals, and our Collection System can be damaged by some substances (e.g., Fats, Oils, Grease).
To prevent damage to either, Environmental Compliance monitors the wastewater discharged at various points in our collection (sewer) system, ensuring that business and industry are complying with discharge requirements. A key element of the program is education. We believe that the more people understand the hazards of toxic discharges to the sewer, the less likely they are to pollute.
