This permit outlines uniform conditions and treatment, discharge, and disposal methods for fresh fruit packing wastewater based on the similarities of wastewater characteristics among facilities.
The combined State Waste Discharge Permit and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES) provides assurance that fruit packers are protecting nearby lakes, rivers, and groundwater when managing the wastewater coming from their facilities.
The current permit went into effect Sept. 1, 2016, and was modified in early 2019 to allow the use of additional products in the fruit packing industry. The modified permit is effective July 1, 2019, and will expire on August 31, 2021.
