The City of Haverhill Pretreatment Program started in 1978. In 1985
the City’s program became authorized under Federal legislation
and fell under EPA guidelines. The existing program varies little from
the original program except where federal limits have been changed by
the EPA. All wet and dry industries, within the boundaries of Haverhill,
fall under this program and are subject to the following parameters.
