The Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) is the process of eliminating or reducing pollutants before they reach a wastewater treatment plant. After all, we know that some types of pollutants found in industrial wastewater might damage the collection system, compromise the treatment process and could contaminate the waters of the state.
To protect our system and the environment, the Pretreatment Program requires some industrial dischargers to use treatment techniques and management practices to reduce or eliminate the types of contaminants that could be harmful to sanitary sewers. The Pretreatment Program is an essential part of the Clean Water Act's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). The Clinton River Water Resource Recovery Facility is authorized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to administratively monitor and enforce rules and regulations in the areas tributary to our system.
All non-domestic users within the tributary area of the Clinton River Water Resource Recovery Facility must complete and submit the User Survey/User Permit Application Form.
