dentistsDental Facilities Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (K2)

This general permit authorizes those who discharge wastewater to the ground water from new or existing dental facilities using individual subsurface sewage disposal systems, i.e. “septic systems”, or Class V Underground Injection Control (UIC) wells. This permit was developed to remove dental amalgam prior to entering the waste stream by requiring dental facilities that generate amalgam waste to implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) and install an amalgam separator.
