Spartanburg Water recognizes industrial users for 100 percent compliance

May 21, 2019

Spartanburg Water is proud to recognize eight industrial customers for their contribution and achievement in helping to protect our environment and water resources.

By meeting the standards and regulatory requirements outlined in their Industrial Pretreatment Discharge Permits, these companies assist Spartanburg Water in keeping our customers, sewer systems, and receiving streams safe.

The Industrial Pretreatment Program is an EPA program that has been used for over 30 years. By treating wastewater before it’s released into our sewer collection and treatment system, commercial and industrial facilities help to remove harmful pollutants that could otherwise reach our streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Spartanburg Water has developed its pretreatment program based on federal, state and local requirements. The following companies were 100 percent compliant with their industrial wastewater permits for the 2018 calendar year:

  • Aramark Uniform and Career Apparel, LLC
  • Lubrizol Advanced Materials
  • Michelin North America – US3
  • Milliken & Company
  • Parker Hannifin – O Ring Division and Engineering Seals Division TechSeal – Operations
  • Siemens Industry Inc.
  • Synthomer USA, LLC
  • Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas, Inc.

By working with these industrial customers, Spartanburg Water is able to achieve an excellent compliance record for its permitted wastewater treatment facilities.

Together, Spartanburg water and its partners are working toward excellence in the quality of our water resources and our quality of life.
