Public Utilities Pretreatment

Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Program

The Salt Lake City pretreatment program is required and regulated under the Clean Water Act, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 40 Part 403, “General Pretreatment Regulations for Existing and New Sources of Pollution”, Utah Administrative Code R317-8-8, and Salt Lake City Ordinance Chapters 17.32, 17.36, 17.52, 17.68 and 17.69.   
All customers connected to the Salt Lake City sewer system are prohibited from introducing pollutants that may impact health, safety, the sewer collection and treatment system, or the environment.
Industries with specific processes and waste streams are explicitly required to meet strict wastewater discharge water quality parameters and must obtain a pretreatment permit to discharge wastewater into the Publicly Owned Treatment Works "POTW".
