The University operates its state-of-the art tertiary treatment plant in the south campus to treat our wastewater.  Much of the wastewater generated on the campus is normal domestic sewage (from those who live on campus or from campus restrooms). However, wastewater from laboratory drains and other non-domestic wastewater sources also drains into the sanitary sewer.  Campus policy does not allow for disposal of hazardous chemicals to the sewers.  To ensure continued compliance with permit conditions and prevent problems from occurring at the wastewater treatment plant, the University has developed a comprehensive sewer disposal policy with specific sewer discharge limits for over 100 constituents of concern. The sewer disposal policy and discharge limits are known in the parlance of wastewater engineering as "Local Limits."
