Since 1981, communities across the country have been able to regulate industrial discharges into wastewater treatment plants in order to enhance the ability of those plants to protect human health and the environment. Johnson County Wastewater's Industrial Pretreatment Program extensively regulates industrial wastewater discharges so that toxic materials do not interfere with wastewater treatment systems or pass through to receiving streams. The program issues permits, inspects, and monitors industries to control discharges to the sanitary sewers. This program also investigates instances of illegal and harmful wastewater discharges.
Special Waste Disposal Authorization (SWD)
A Special Wastewater Disposal Authorization (SWD) is required for industries needing to dispose of wastewater generated from non-routine activities or unforeseen events. The disposal of this wastewater is typically a one-time event. An SWD is valid for one year from the date of issuance.
Long-Term Wastewater Disposal Authorization
A Long-Term Wastewater Disposal Authorization is required for industries needing to dispose of wastewater generated from non-routine activities or unforeseen events over an extended period of time. Long-Term Authorizations are non-expiring, unless the wastewater flow and/or characteristics change significantly or the discharge is subsequently determined by the control authority to present a concern to the collection system or treatment plant.
Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit (IWD)
An Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit (IWD) is required when an industry has been determined to fall under one or more of the categories specified in the Code of Federal Regulations, the wastewater discharge has been determined to have the potential of significantly impacting the sanitary sewage collection system and/or wastewater treatment plant, or is otherwise deemed necessary by the control authority. An IWD is valid for five years from the date of issuance.
