Will Pretreatment Facilities be Expensive?

They are not cheap, but the actual cost depends on the type and amount of pollutants in the wastewater.  Some of our customers, however, have found that pretreatment results in a cost savings to them.  This is because some of the substances reclaimed in pretreatment have value, and can be sold or reused.  These pretreatment regulations also encourage industries to re-evaluate some of their processes and to conserve water and other resources, thereby saving them money.
