Since 2008, the City of Meridian has regulated industrial and commercial wastewater discharges into the public sewer system through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency National Pretreatment Program elements established for a Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) Industrial Pretreatment Program. The Clean Water Act and the General Pretreatment Regulations (40 CFR Part 403) are the foundation of this program.

The Pretreatment Program objectives are met by helping local businesses understand their responsibilities under the Meridian City Code and the Federal Pretreatment Rules (pollution control requirements). Meridian City's Pretreatment Program local legal authority is established by Title 9, Chapter 2 Meridian City Code.

If you are an industrial or commercial business that discharges or plans to discharge wastewater to the Meridian Wastewater Resource Recovery Facility sewer system, you should check with the Meridian Pretreatment Program to determine which pretreatment requirements may apply to your wastewater discharge and if you need to apply for a permit.
