Description of Services:Processes at the facility include wastewater pretreatment and used oil management. Materials are all processed in the onsite building. The facility’s Wastewater Pretreatment Notification limits the materials that are permitted for treatment at the site. The facility discharges wastewater which must comply with Federal categorical pretreatment standards for the Centralized Waste category. Specifically, the wastewaters discharged from the facility must meet two Centralized Waste subcategories-Metals Treatment and Recovery (wastewater in this subcategory contain significant quantities of metals) and Oil Treatment and Recovery (wastewater in this subcategory contain significant quantities of oil and grease, as well as metals or organics).

Treated wastewaters are initially processed through screen tank and then stored in three storage tanks. The wastewater will be then be physically treated in a series of tanks to separate solids and oils (collected solids and oils are stored in tanks for off-site disposal). Depending on the source of the wastewater, it may also be chemically treated to further remove dissolved contaminants. Chemical treatment generally includes pH adjustments and flocculation. Treated wastewater is stored in tanks before being discharged. The treated waste water is discharged through a single sampling port and metering location to the City of Ripon Wastewater Treatment facility.

Used oil collected as part of the operations is recycled at a contracted oil recycler. Basically, there are two sludges (one from an ink wastewater waste stream and the other for all other waste streams) generated as part of the treatment process. Both of these sludges are sent to an offsite landfill. The site uses a press to remove liquids from the ink waste stream sludges. The dried filter cakes are placed on a dumpster and removed for disposal at an offsite landfill.
