Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit

If you own or operate a business within the Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District Service area, you may be required to apply for a permit to discharge your wastewater. Even if a permit is not required, there are prohibitions and limits on what can be discharged to the sewer. For more information on these, as well as what types of businesses need an Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit, please contact

Businesses with the potential to discharge toxic pollutants are issued permits and required to regularly sample and analyze their wastewater to make sure they meet their permit limits. The District Pretreatment Inspectors inspect permitted industries and monitor their wastewater discharge to determine compliance with their permit. Enforcement actions are taken against industries found to be in violation.
