Discharging Dental Wastewater Responsibly
The Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Program’s inspectors conduct inspections of dental practices that discharge Mercury into the City of Meridian sewerage system. Our inspectors use the Idaho Dental Associations Best Management Practices for Dental Offices as their inspection checklist.
Meridian’s Industrial Wastewater Pretreatment Program has adopted the ISDA’s Best Management Practices program to assist our community’s dentists on how to best manage the disposal of dental wastes. Following these “best management practices” will ensure Meridian dentists to meet compliance with applicable environmental, biomedical, occupational health, and transportation regulations.
