Boxelder Sanitation District initiated an Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) Approved Industrial Pretreatment Program in 1994 in an effort to reduce the amount of toxic and hazardous waste that enter the Boxelder Sanitation District wastewater utility.
Wastewater discharged from industries, commercial business and households can create hazards for the community’s wastewater collection and treatment facility. Industrial by-products can interfere with the wastewater treatment operations, or pass through the system untreated, potentially contaminating the Boxelder Creek and our Poudre River.
By pre-treating their wastewater discharges, Boxelder Sanitation District industries can help reduce the
amount of pollutants that are discharged to the District’s wastewater utility.
