Nine industrial companies recognized for compliance in treating wastewater, protecting water resources

SPARTANBURG – Spartanburg Water is proud to recognize nine industrial customers for their commitment to protecting the environment and our water resources.

These companies help Spartanburg Water keep our customers, sewer systems, and receiving streams safe by meeting the standards and regulatory requirements outlined in their Industrial Pretreatment Discharge Permits.

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 2019 calendar year:
• Aramark Uniform and Career Apparel, LLC
• BASF Corporation
• Crane Instrumentation & Sampling, Inc
• Milliken & Company
• Parker Hannifin - O Ring Division and Engineering Division TechSeal – Operations
• Solvay USA, Inc
• Synthomer USA, LLC
• Toray Composite Materials America Inc
• 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.

These awards are a testament to the dedication of Spartanburg Water and its partners to improving the quality of our water resources and our quality of life.
