Emergency Spills and Pretreatment Bypasses

Emergency Spill Notification

Spills and pretreatment bypasses must be reported immediately after being discovered. This will help SD1 better prepare wastewater treatment plants for unexpected discharges.

Situations that would trigger a notification to SD1’s Industrial Pretreatment Department include:

  • Expansions or modifications to any existing activity that is permitted. This could potentially require the issuance of a new permit.
  • Any change in process or operations that could potentially affect the industrial discharge released. Notify SD1 within 30 days.
  • Any violation of an existing Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit. Notify SD1 within 24 hours of becoming aware of the violation.

Please contact SD1 at 859-547-1673 to report a spill or pretreatment bypass.
