Households, commercial establishments, and industries discharge wastewater into the sanitary sewer systems that lead to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). Industrial wastewaters are often contaminated by a variety of toxic and otherwise harmful substances. Because sewers and treatment systems have not been designed to treat these industrial wastes, they can damage the sewers; interfere with the proper operation of the treatment plants; pass through the treatment plants untreated, resulting in contamination of local water bodies; and increase the cost and environmental risks of sludge disposal. Industrial facilities, using proven pollution control technologies, can remove pollutants from their wastewaters before discharging them into municipal sewage treatment systems. This practice is known as 'pretreatment'. The National Pretreatment Program, a cooperative effort of federal, state, and local officials, is implementing the practice on a nationwide basis. The document explains the need for the National Pretreatment Program; describes federal, state and local roles in the program's implementation; and explores the program's future.
