What Your Local Regulator Wants You to Know About … Pretreatment Anatomy

Are you responsible for you company’s Industrial Waste Control Program? … Do you manage or operate an industrial pretreatment unit? … Has your facility ever been issued a Notice of Violation for failure to comply with a permit condition? … Have you ever wondered how your regulator determines appropriate enforcement actions? … Have you ever wondered what the legal jargon in your facility’s permit means?

If you responded YES to any of those questions, this workshop is for you!

We will cover definitions and acronyms relevant to your Sewer Use Ordinance and Industrial User Permit, the anatomy of a Significant Industrial User Permit, common stumbling blocks for SIUs (such as pertinent notifications and sampling), and enforcement. This is information you need and should know.

This workshop is eligible for 6 hours of continuing education credits from the Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators Certification Commission.
