Carrollton Recognizes Environmentally-Friendly Businesses
Carrollton's Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) is a working partnership between the residential/industrial private sector and the public sector - city, state, federal governments and the publicly owned treatment plant. Through community cooperation, information, compliance and enforcement, Carrollton's IPP manages industrial pollutants to ensure that treatment interference, passthrough, damage to the treatment plant, or injury to personnel does not occur.
Pretreatment in Action
The Federal Clean Water Act mandates the protection of public waters from various sources of pollution. Carrollton's Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) complies with the Clean Water Act by controlling industrial discharges and other potential "point sources" of water pollution in the city. Under the program, the city continuously evaluates the wastewater of new and existing facilities, issues wastewater discharge permits, and monitors permitted industries through regular wastewater sampling and comprehensive facility inspections.
Pollution Prevention Partnership
Carrollton's IPP management approach emphasizes information and compliance over enforcement, from the belief that education, training and partnership maximize both environmental and economic benefits. The , which includes members from regulated industries and city representatives, provides an excellent communication forum. Group members meet to discuss regulatory updates and multi-agency environmental issues that industries must address in the course of their operations. Between committee meetings, the IPP publishes a newsletter, "Industry Committee Highlights", to provide pertinent regulatory and enforcement information and to remind industries of reporting deadlines. Carrollton's IPP also rewards consistent compliance with reduced reporting requirements.
