Water pouring out of faucet

The purpose of Pretreatment and Source Control is to manage industrial wastewater dischargers to enhance the ability of the Agency’s water recycling plants to comply with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requirements; to protect the public, the environment, and Agency personnel and facilities; and to recover wastewater treatment operations and maintenance costs.

The wastewater collections system is comprised of the Regional Sewerage System which conveys wastewater to the Agency’s regional water recycling plants or to the Non-Reclaimable Wastewater System (NRWS) and exports industrial wastewater laden with high strength and not suitable for recycling at this time.
