2012 Annual Report


 

Water Pollution Control

(WPC) is responsible for maintaining a clean Flint River in three ways. First, it operates and maintains a 50 million gallon per day capacity treatment plant and 9 remote pumping stations for conveying sewage through sanitary sewers. It cleans this wastewater from homes, businesses, and industries before discharging it to the river. The cleanliness of the wastewater discharged consistently exceeds standards set by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency.

To prevent overloading of the plant or damage to sewers, WPC administers an Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP). The IPP tests and regulates discharges from industries into the sanitary sewers.

WPC also administers the City’s Storm water Management Plan, designed to prevent water pollution caused by illegal discharges to rivers via the street drains (storm sewers) that empty
directly into them. WPC monitors chemical spills and other illicit discharges to the City’s storm water collection system.  To report dumping of polluting wastes, such as oil, paint, chemicals or rubbish, into storm sewers, call the Environmental Compliance Unit at 766-7210.

To schedule a tour of the facilities, or for more information regarding prevention of water pollution, call 766-7210. Sewer backups or blockages should be reported to Sewer Maintenance at 766-7079.
