Discharges to the Sanitary drains - Summary
The improper disposal of hazardous chemicals via the sanitary sewers can create significant health and safety issues and may result in environmental degradation. The lack of formal hazardous waste collection and management procedures may prompt your staff to consider using sanitary drains as a disposal option. Effective training and guidance are key to preventing inappropriate uses of the local plumbing system.
