The three City of Orlando water reclamation plants Iron Bridge, Conserv I, and Conserv II receive a total of approximately 36 million gallons per day of wastewater. Much of this is attained from domestic wastewater, but a large portion is received by industrial wastewater. Industrial wastewater permitting is increasingly important for protection of our state’s most precious natural resource—water.
There are several industries that require pretreatment that include, but are not limited to; manufacturing, commercial businesses, mining, agricultural production and processing, and wastewater from cleanup of petroleum and chemical contaminated sites. Pretreatment is the removal, reduction, or alteration of pollutants in industrial wastewater prior to discharge or introduction into a domestic water reclamation treatment facility.
