Industrial Pretreatment Program

INDUSTRIAL PRETREATMENT PROGRAM

The National Pretreatment Program was established by Section 307 of the Clean Water Act primarily to control pollutant loadings from industrial sources and prevent their interference with the operation of publicly owned treatment works.

In Georgia, the Environmental Protection Division (EPD) of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), operating under rule 301-3-6-.08, has been delegated the authority by the Environmental Protection Agency to administer local pretreatment programs found in 40 CFR Park 403.

The Henry County Water Authority works to protect the local receiving waters by regulating industrial wastewater discharge to the Authority's sewer system and by administering and enforcing federal EPA pretreatment guidelines.
