Industrial Pretreatment Program


The Pretreatment Program is responsible for:
  • Providing excellent service to the industrial and commercial businesses we serve
  • Protecting the quality of the water bodies in and around Richmond
  • Ensuring the wastewater discharges into the sewer system do not impair or harm the collection system, treatment plant personnel, the treatment process, or the water bodies to which they discharge
  • Resolving the challenges in this arena to the best of our ability
  • Issuing permits to wastewater dischargers in the sewer district
