WASTEWATER DISCHARGE BY-LAW
RESPECTING DISCHARGE INTO PUBLIC SEWERS
This by-law outlines controls for the discharge of wastewater into the CBRM wastewater collection system. The objectives of the by-law are to:
protect the sewer collection system from corrosion, other damage and obstruction;
protect the wastewater treatment process from upset;
protect the public, municipal workers and property from hazardous conditions (such as explosions);
assist optimum wastewater system efficiency by preventing uncontaminated water from entering the system;
and protect the environment from contaminants that are not removed by the public treatment process.
