​​Industrial Pretreatment Program

The Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) is a federally mandated pollution control program under the Clean Water Act which regulates the discharges of industrial and commercial facilities to the sanitary sewer system.​

IPP Goals:

  • Prevent the introduction of pollutants into wastewater treatment plants that will interfere with treatment operations.
  • Prevent the introduction​ of pollutants that will pass through the treatment works and be incompatible with the environment.
  • Improve the feasibility of recycling and reclaiming the municipal and industrial wastewaters and biosolids.
  • Enforce applicable EPA wastewater quality standards.
  • Reduce the health and environmental risk of pollution caused by wastewater discharges to wastewater treatment plants.
