National Pretreatment Workshop

Tacoma, WA | May 14-17, 2019

Join us at the National Pretreatment & Pollution Prevention Workshop + Training, the only national conference designed especially for pretreatment professionals!

Why Attend?

National Pretreatment Workshop (May 15-17)

The program will focus on topics that promise to be important for pretreatment programs in the future, as well as issues that are currently affecting these programs. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff will provide the latest updates on federal initiatives, including the Dental Amalgam Rule and Hazardous Waste Pharmaceutical Disposal.  Featured speakers and panel presentations will address PFAS, FOG, bio-cremation, flushable wipes, and more!

+ Training (May 14)

New and seasoned pretreatment professionals can all benefit from one of the optional, all-day courses offered:

  • Take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage your fellow clean water colleagues.

  • Enjoy the opportunity to speak with EPA officials and others in your EPA Region to discuss similar priorities.

  • Focus on the topics that matter most to you during roundtable discussions on pretreatment issues.

  • With various attendee-friendly platforms for education, collaboration and networking, this will be your best professional development experience of 2019.

    “I really enjoyed the format. Having a full day of training for a topic was a good idea. The workshop had good combination of updates/topics/roundtables and receptions. I got a great amount of usable information and contacts.”
