Delegated vs. Non-Delegated POTW
A delegated POTW, or Publicly Owned Treatment Works, is a municipal water treatment facility which has been delegated by Ecology to accept and manage industrial wastewater or stormwater on their own terms. If your local treatment facility is a delegated POTW and you have an agreement with them to take your wastewater and/or stormwater, you do not need to report test results to Ecology.
A Non-Delegated POTW is a municipal water treatment facility that has not been delegated by Ecology to manage its incoming industrial waste water on its own terms. If your local treatment facility is a non-delegated POTW and you discharge wastewater to them, you must send test results for copper, zinc, lead and pH to Ecology.
