A successful pre-treatment program helps to protect the integrity of the wastewater collection system, treatment plants and ultimately, receiving waters. This webcast will provide the viewer with an overview of prohibitions through pretreatment programs that help protect collection systems including minimizing concentrations of pollutants that could cause corrosion, fire or explosion, toxic vapor and gases and additional programmatic benefits to system owners and operators. The viewer will also benefit from a discussion on regulatory compliance information and ideas to streamline the pre-treatment permitting process.
