We’re committed to educating our customers about how they can help protect our region and become proactive environmental stewards. We work hard to protect the health of our region and the natural world around us.
For some pollutants that wind up in our wastewater – either directly through disposal or indirectly through stormwater runoff – the most effective approach to keeping them out of our waterways is preventing them from entering the sewer system in the first place. We call this “source control.”
To educate our customers about how they can help control pollutants of concern at the source, we’ve developed outreach programs that encourage sustainable habits that keep our environment healthy.
To prevent misuse and keep medications from entering our waterways, please dispose of unused prescription and over-the-counter medications responsibly. Flushing unused or expired medications down the sink or toilet can pollute the environment.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Dental Effluent Guidelines (40 CFR 441) took effect on July 14, 2017. Dentists that place or remove amalgam are required to install amalgam separators and follow two Best Management Practices (BMPs). Existing dentists have three years to comply with the new regulations, but new facilities that start discharging after the effective date need to comply immediately. In both situations, the dental practice will need to submit a One-Time Compliance Report to Regional San.
