Some businesses produce wastewater in large quantities or produce "high-strength" wastewater that contains high levels of yeasts, sugars, or chemicals. Having a lot of wastewater coming in at one time, or having high-strength wastewater come in without being pre-treated causes problems at the Ellis Creek Recycling Facility. So the City needs to know about these businesses and monitor their wastewater discharge.
The City also needs to know if a business will be generating contaminated water on a short-term basis, such as during a construction project or, in the case of utilities, an infrastructure inspection.
