Dental Offices

As part of our mission to return clean water to our environment, the City of Murfreesboro’s Industrial Pretreatment Program is responsible for monitoring and controlling non-domestic wastewater dischargers into our sanitary sewer system.

On June 14, 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Dental Category (40 CFR Part 441) that became effective on July 14, 2017. The rule applies to wastewater dischargers to the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) from offices where the practice of dentistry is performed, including:

  • large institutions such as dental schools and clinics
  • permanent or temporary offices
  • home offices
  • dental facilities owned and operated by the military and federal, state or local governments

The EPA rule requires the above listed dental facilities to submit to the WRRF a One-Time Compliance Report. This report needs to be completed and signed by an authorized representative.

Please return the completed Dental Amalgam One-Time Compliance Report to:
Water Resource Recovery Facility
