Wastewater Treatment

EPA Permit

The Ohio EPA issues a permit to the City, for effluent discharge into the Mad River, under the NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) mandate of the federal government.

Our EPA permit also defines requirements for residuals management and industrial waste control. In fiscal and calendar year 2000, the plant was serving a population of about 83,000 with a plant staff of 25 professionals, and an annual Operations and Maintenance budget of two million dollars.

A major construction project was also underway from 1999 and into 2000, to improve infrastructure and to develop automation of much of the continuous operation of the plant. The plant is currently pursuing an expansion to reduce our impact from storm water surcharging and to improve current processes.

Municipal Industrial Pretreatment Program (MIPP)

This program regulates the commercial and industrial discharges to the collection system that can harmfully impact the treatment units at the plant. The program is regulated through the use of Chapter 916 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Springfield, or better known as the Sewer Use Ordinance. This lists the definitions, requirements and restrictions expected of our industrial users of our collection system. It also provides a legal means for the City to implement control.
