Industrial Pre-treatment Program (IPP)

The City of Wyoming's Industrial Pre-treatment Program is a wastewater management program administered by the Environmental Services Department. The program was developed to monitor and enforce industrial outfall compliance keeping the wastewater system and the environment safe and free of potentially dangerous toxic substances.

We accomplish this by:

  • Regulating the disposal of industrial wastewater into the sanitary sewer system
  • Complying with pretreatment regulations as required under the Federal and State regulations
  • Creating recycling opportunities for nutrient rich biosolids generated during the treatment process

And by accomplishing this we:

  • Protect the wastewater system's structures, operations, personnel involved, and overall safety
  • Protect the health, safety, and general well being of the public and the environment

By law, the City of Wyoming is required to inspect or survey all industrial users of the sanitary sewer system at least once every five (5) years or when a new industrial facility is built. In an effort to reduce costs and streamline this process, our survey is now electronic and includes an option for data submission.

Review the CWP Environmental Services Guide to the Sewer Use Ordinance document.

Download and complete the IPP Non-Domestic User Survey and submit electronically or return by mail.
