How does the CCMUA deal with Industrial Polluters?

Industrial Pretreatment Program (delegated to the CCMUA by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection) works with businesses in Camden County to determine if they are at risk of causing excess demand on the treatment facilities. Businesses found to be at risk are issued permits spelling out the limits on pollutants likely to be in their wastewater. The businesses must have their discharges tested at stated intervals and report on the test results. They are also subject to unannounced testing, performed by CCMUA staff members. Fines can be assessed if necessary to enforce compliance.
