Asbestos removal wastewater
WEP accepts wastewater from asbestos removal
contractors. This program provides contractors with an
alternative to landfill disposal for the treatment and
disposal of decontamination wastewater that may contain asbestos. WEP
requires that asbestos removal contractors abide by
its regulations for discharging wastewater to the
Onondaga County Sanitary Sewer System.
WEP procedures require contractors to submit an
Asbestos Abatement Project Notification/Permit
beginning the project. (See link below for application
The current fee for permit application is $200.
Once the completed application is received by this
Department, an inspection is conducted to ensure that
the contractor conforms to the Department's
Procedures for the Acceptance of Wastewater from
Asbestos Abatement Projects.
If the Department accepts the contractor's
application, the contractor will be required to
discharge the wastewater through a series of three
filters, each with progressively smaller pore sizes,
to ensure that the majority of asbestos is removed
from the wastewater.
