BOD/COD for Discharge – The concentration of BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) and COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) is an important factor in whether your wastewater can be discharged to POTW or sewer.
Heavy Metals – POTW discharge permits frequently limit concentrations of arsenic, barium, cadmium, chrome, mercury, silver, and other heavy metals.
pH Balance – How acidic or basic your wastewater often determines whether you can discharge it to your local POTW or reuse it in your process.
Oil Removal – Fats, oils and grease (FOG), wet solids, mechanically/chemically emulsified oils, and dissolved oil must be removed from wastewater before discharge or reuse.
Solids – Discharge permits may regulate the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), or Total Solids (TS) in your wastewater. Additionally, solids often have to be removed before reusing water in a process.
Regulated Chemicals – Bromide, chloride, fluoride, sulfates, ammonia, nitrogen, and many other chemicals exist in industrial wastewater. These often have to be removed before disposing or reusing water.
