The City of Zeeland CWP administers an Industrial Pre-treatment Program designed to ensure that the community, the wastewater plant, and the environment are protected. This program is required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Michigan Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE).

The program periodically issues permits to non-domestic sewer users within the collection system as needed to ensure that the concentrations of any pollutants in their wastewater comply with the requirements of the Sewer Use Ordinance. Samples of wastewater are also collected from various points in the collection system to continuously monitor for unknown sources of pollutants. In the event of an accidental spill or discharge, the program will utilize available resources in attempt to ensure regulatory compliance.

Detailed information regarding the wastewater discharge limits, rates, and penalties can be found in our Guide to the Sewer Use Ordinance document of Chapter 86 of the Code of Ordinances.
