Industrial wastewater discharge is regulated by federal and state laws and regulations, and by the Santa Clara Municipal Ordinance. Hazardous materials/hazardous waste, bio-hazardous, and radioactive waste are prohibited from disposal down the drain at SCU unless listed on the List of Discharges Authorized for Sink Disposal.

Notify EHS immediately when aware of accidental discharge of potentially reportable quantities or discharge of any substance, which if otherwise disposed would be hazardous waste.
