The City of Spokane today is recognizing a business that has excelled in the management of wastewater generated as part of their processes.

Exotic Metals Forming Company LLC has achieved 100 percent compliance with requirements in their industrial wastewater discharge permits for 2018. Businesses are required to have such permits either because they produce a large volume of wastewater or because they discharge pollutants that can disrupt wastewater treatment processes.

“Exotic Metals is once again being acknowledged for their wastewater management,” said Scott Simmons, the City’s Public Works Division Director. “They remain good stewards of our environment and help the City operate its wastewater treatment system efficiently, which is critical as we work to achieve ever more-stringent water quality standards. We appreciate their dedication.”

The City processes about 34 million gallons of wastewater daily. The City actively works with businesses to prevent harmful or damaging substances from being discharged into the sewer system.
