Wastewater discharges to the collection and treatment system are regulated by Livermore Municipal Code Sections 13.32 and 13.36. Businesses and activities that require a discharge permit include:

  • Any industrial facility requiring regulation under federal law.
  • Facilities that warrant periodic inspection and monitoring to prevent discharge of problem pollutants into the collection system.

Such facilities include product manufacturing, commercial food preparation, photo processing, machinery and equipment repair, and construction site dewatering. Permits generally include sampling and monitoring requirements, and compliance with applicable Best Management Practices. Discharges must comply with specific pollutant limitations known as “local limits.”
