Austin Water Utility inspects and monitors industrial wastewater sources discharging to the City's wastewater collection system and treatment plants to independently verify compliance with all applicable pretreatment standards.
Routine Inspection & Monitoring
Conduct inspections and unannounced monitoring of:
those construction or renovation projects that could potentially impact pretreatment device performance or discharge standard compliance.
Other monitoring and inspection activities are conducted on an as-needed basis to investigate problems or unusual conditions in the wastewater collection or treatment system. They may also be a part of an investigation involving suspicious activity or illegal dumping.
If you have any question about any suspicious discharge to the sanitary sewer, please contact the Pretreatment Program. Your assistance would be appreciated and your confidentiality respected.
