The City of Peoria Industrial Users Program protects the environment, collection system, treatment works, citizens, and employees of our community. Monitoring, inspecting, and regulating discharges into the collection system is necessary due to the potential for harmful effects from prohibited substances entering the collection system.
Around the clock sampling of the actual discharges from businesses may be performed to ensure compliance. A State of Arizona licensed lab performs analysis of the samples.
An unlawful discharge could create explosive and/or toxic conditions within the collection system or at the treatment facility. Severe damage could be done to the collection system and other components. Some chemicals can also seriously impair the biological process used to treat our wastewater at treatment facilities.
We all have a responsibility to properly dispose of unwanted chemicals that are no longer needed. The City of Peoria holds special events several times per year to help our citizens properly dispose of many chemicals such as waste oil, paint, solvents, etc. If you need additional information or would like to check to see when the next scheduled day is, please call 623-773-7431.

A Wastewater Discharge Survey must be completed for any business that may potentially be classified as a Permitted Facility or as a Significant Industrial User. Without proper pretreatment devices in place these facilities could adversely affect the quality and methods that wastewater treatment plants must utilize to properly treat wastewater. Please refer to the Wastewater Development Design Guidelines to determine if your facility must submit a Wastewater Discharge Survey.
