Significant Industrial Users (SIUs) of the wastewater system must maintain discharge permits under the individual city programs. SIUs are defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Pretreatment Program is overseen by the State of Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. These dischargers are required to control the quality of their discharge by installing systems to pretreat their wastewater. Pretreatment systems remove certain pollutants and toxins.
Each city’s program also address Pollution Management Practices for certain industry groups like photoprocessors, food service establishments, and dental offices.
