The City of Nacogdoches (City) Pretreatment Program administers local, state and federal regulations to control the discharge of pollutants from commercial and industrial users within the City, which may pass through or interfere with the City’s wastewater treatment plant.
The Pretreatment Program protects the wastewater treatment process and keeps costs down by working with local businesses to minimize pollutant discharges. Activities of the City’s Pretreatment Program include issuance of permits, facility inspections, monitoring of facilities (wastewater sample collection), review of industry self-monitoring reports, and enforcement actions.
Cross-Connection and Backflow Prevention Program
Backflow is the undesirable reversal in a potable water distribution system. A Cross-Connection is a connection between a potable drinking water supply and a possible source of contamination or pollution. The City of Nacogdoches Cross-Connection and Backflow Prevention Program is responsible for protecting the City’s public water supply by regulating the installation, testing, re-testing and certification of testable backflow prevention assemblies and certified backflow assembly testers.
The City has contracted with SC Tracking Solutions (SC) to administer our cross-connection control/backflow tracking program. The City uses SC online for all initial and annual test report submissions.
