Discharge Permit for Industrial Customers


Industries monitored under the pretreatment program are subject to surveillance fees and surcharges for excessive and extraordinary strength discharges. These fees shall be reviewed on an annual basis to reflect changes in operating cost.

Industrial Discharge Permit Application

The primary purpose of the Pretreatment Program is to protect the wastewater treatment facility from high strength discharges from industrial users. All industries wishing to discharge into the sanitary sewer system must complete an Application for Industrial Discharge Permit. The permit will be issued by the director with discharge limits for each individual industry. The permit is valid for five years. An application must be completed and submitted along with a $50 processing fee before the permit is granted.

Please submit the completed application to:
