I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I have called around to so many different people and can never get a straight answer.

I have an email that was sent to me that outlines the specific areas and ways that you can discharge wastewater in Colorado.

According to the Colorado Water Quality Control Division, no wastewater is to enter a storm sewer. They do say that you should contact your local waste treatment plant to find about dumping water in the sanitary sewer or at the plant.

I called multiple wastewater treatment plants in and around Colorado Springs and they told me that they don't allow dumping at their location or into a sanitary sewer because the water must first go through a sand and oil separator.

Nobody had a clue about what to do with the water and one guy told me to take it to a car wash and dump it because they have the appropriate separators.

Why on Earth would they make it so difficult to stay compliant?

I'm going to call the landfill to see if they accept wastewater. Who knows?

Sounds like they want you to pre-treat the water before disposal.

One option might be a Hydro Tek AZV55 or VZVE1.

On page 4 of the price list.

I can fully understand pre-treating before disposal. The problem lies with the fact that you can't even get a permit to dump in a sanitary sewer.

It's no wonder that there are only a handful of pressure washing companies in a town of over 500,000.
