In 1981, North Olmsted implemented a Municipal Industrial Pretreatment Program (MIPP) per Federal and State Environmental Protection Agency requirements.  This program is under the direction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent and is implemented by sufficient personnel committed to carry out the activities of such a program.

The program is an efficient monitoring and enforcement tool used to protect the City's sewer system, treatment plant, their workers and the surrounding environment from injury and/or disruption of biological processes caused by deleterious materials.

Pretreatment Inspections are done to make sure industries conduct their manufacturing processes and operate their wastewater treatment systems in compliance with the pretreatment regulations and to prevent the discharge of unwanted substances to the sanitary sewer system and wastewater treatment plant.

New restaurant's, auto dealership, auto repair shops, dental facility's, dry cleaning companies can reach out to the city and have the Wastewater Discharge Disclosure Declaration sent to them.
