NC Department of Environmental Quality - Pretreatment Program Training
The Federal and State Pretreatment Program gives regulatory authority for EPA, states, and municipal governments to control the discharge of industrial wastewater into municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) or Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs). The objectives of the Pretreatment Program are to prevent pass-through, interference, or other adverse impacts to the POTW, its workers or the environment; to promote the beneficial reuse of biosolids; and to assure that all categorical pretreatment standards are met. There are approximately 620 Significant Industrial Users (SIUs) who discharge industrial wastewater to more than 130 POTWs throughout the State of North Carolina.
NCRWA is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping members attain the highest standard in drinking water and wastewater service. Check our training site if you are in need of continuing education hours.
Our training programs are a critical piece in fulfilling our mission to provide water education, training, and leadership to protect public health and the environment. By educating water and wastewater professionals, we are equipping them with the knowledge they need to provide clean drinking water, safely collect and treat wastewater, design and build the infrastructure needed to carry out these tasks, and handle challenges that arise.
