KCIW’s general fact sheet: Discharging industrial wastewater to the King County sewer system (PDF)
Our regulations are designed to prevent businesses from discharging substances that can degrade the wastewater treatment process, harm workers or facilities, or impact water quality. Since 1969, the KCIW has required many industries to pretreat wastewater before discharging it into the sewer.
By working together, we can help King County recover and recycle beneficial resources, like biosolids, from the wastewater treatment process.
