IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The Lake County Department of Utilities takes multiple steps and precautions to ensure that the water going back into Lake Erie is clean and free of contaminants. This aim starts with our Industrial Pretreatment Department. Pretreatment is responsible for regulating and controlling the discharge of industrial wastewater into our collections system.

The Pretreatment Department issues permits for the various industrial users, thereby limiting the number of contaminants allowed at our wastewater treatment plant. To ensure these limits are met, the Pretreatment Department is responsible to take samples from all of the industrial users as well as perform random inspections on grease traps, drain systems, and hazardous materials. If violations are found, the Pretreatment Department requires the customer to remedy the issues or fines will be imposed. The Lake County Department of Utilities Industrial Pretreatment Department takes great pride in ensuring that the wastewater entering our treatment plants are to optimal standards so that harmful materials cannot infiltrate our system.

Below is a picture of a Composite Sampler (Gray) that the Pretreatment Department is using to take a 24 hour sample to be examined and tested by our in house Lab!
