Permitted Industrial User Rates

The following table describes the framework for surcharging wastewater constituents. Based on this table, required industries are allocated mutually agreed upon waste loads that can be discharged from their facility into AUB's wastewater collection system. Wastewaters in excess of the industry specific allocations are either surcharged for flow and pollutants or are notified (and/or penalized) of the noncompliance. Certain pollutants have 'break-point' surcharge rates and/or maximum discharge allowances which are prescribed in the industries User Permit. Only facilities with a valid Industrial User Permit are subject to AUB surcharge rates.
