National Pretreatment Workshop

Providence, RI | May 15-18, 2018

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

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.
