As part of the BGJWSC pretreatment program, discharge limitations for industrial customers must be set for each of the three Water Pollution Control Plants (WPCP). These discharge limits are designed to prevent damage to the sanitary sewer, WPCP, public health, and the environment.
These documents have been developed in accordance with the guidelines and information set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD). EPA developed these regulations to establish prohibitions which are implemented through local limits for waste water discharge. In addition to the local limits, some industrial customers may also be subject to categorical limits based on their manufacturing processes.
