Permits

Wastewater treatment, water recycling, and ocean discharge are highly regulated processes. Regulations help safeguard public health and the environment by setting strict operational and water quality standards. To operate our facilities, we must maintain valid State and local permits that verify the effectiveness and integrity of our treatment and discharge procedures.
