Industrial Pretreatment Program

The City of Helena has an approved  Industrial Pretreatment program that is regulated by the EPA and used to maintain compliance with the Wastewater Treatment Facility's discharge permit requirements. This program facilitates compliance by reducing heavy metals and other harmful contaminants from entering the WWTF.

The Wastewater Treatment Facility continues to accept hauled septic waste as a valuable community service. Licensed Septic haulers are required to complete a Manifest Form for every load dumped at the designated dumping station.

If you are discharging anything other than normal household waste into the sanitary sewer you must fill out an Industrial User's Application.

Before you use the drain to dispose of any liquid other than normal household waste, call and we will help you dispose of the waste in a safe manner that will not endanger the collection system, the WWTF, or the environment.
