All industrial users must meet Ordinance limits. If you believe your industry requires pretreatment to meet Ordinance limits or if you do not know whether your industry can meet the Ordinance Limits, contact the Pretreatment Coordinator.
Are you required to have a Wastewater Discharge Permit?
All industries that are categorical as defined in the National Code of Federal Regulations are required to have a Wastewater Discharge Permit. If your industrial facility is categorical but does not discharge process wastewater, you must apply for a zero discharge permit. If you are not sure whether your industrial facility falls under one of these codes, please contact the Pretreatment Coordinator for assistance.
All industrial users that discharge an average of 25,000 gallons per day of process wastewater or more, regardless of categorical status, must apply for a Wastewater Discharge Permit.
Any industrial user that has a reasonable potential for adversely affecting the District’s operation must notify the Pretreatment Coordinator at the above e-mail address to request a determination whether a Wastewater Discharge permit will be required. This must be done 90 days before the start of operation, or immediately if already in operation as of January 1, 2008.
All industrial users are required to notify the District, USEPA and IEPA of any hazardous waste in their discharges which are subject to the requirement, as specified under 40 CFR 403.12(p).
NOTE: This information applies to Wastewater Discharge Permits only.
All new or modified building connections or discharges are required to
obtain a District connection construction permit, regardless of
nature of discharge. See Permit Info
