Discharge Permits and Fees

Permission is required for any discharge of industrial wastewater into the City of Winston-Salem’s wastewater collection system. Several different permits are issued based on the nature of the business and the volume and characteristics of wastewater to be discharged. Our program is also involved in the approval of discharges of hauled septage waste at the city’s approved receiving station. The process for obtaining a discharge permit varies for different classes of users. These different classes are:

    • Industrial User (SIU) Permit
    • Commercial User Permit
    • Special Wastewater Discharge Permit
    • Septage Permit
    • Permission for Pump and Haul
