Wastewater Quality Monitoring

The Clean Water Act and wastewater discharge
Wastewater discharged to surface water without a proper control can pollute rivers and lakes, and even ground water. To protect water in the US from pollution by discharged wastewater, the Clean Water Act (CWA) was established in 1972 as amendments to and replacement of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1948.
The regulations specify minimum sampling requirements for wastewater treatment
systems based on system classification. As well, sampling requirements for wastewater
treatment systems may also be stipulated in a Certificate of Approval (COA) issued under
Section 16 of the Environmental Protection Act.


The following minimum sampling requirements apply to a Class I wastewater
treatment facility:
- Carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand (cBOD5), total suspended solids
(TSS), and faecal coliform on a quarterly basis
- Ammonia (NH3), total phosphorous (TP) and total nitrogen (TN) on an annual
basis
The following minimum sampling requirements apply to a Class II, Class III or Class
IV wastewater treatment facility:
- Carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand (cBOD5), Total suspended solids, and
faecal coliform on a monthly basis
- Ammonia (NH3), total phosphorous (TP) and total nitrogen (TN) on an annual
basis


DEEPA ENTERPRISES TESTING LABORATORIES provides sampling and testing services to help wastewater clients comply with municipal water discharge permit requirements for Industrial Pretreatment Programs.
