Waste Water


The Waste Water program at Texas State University is designed to help the University comply with environmental requirements and restrictions that have been placed upon the University by outside agencies.

The University must comply with the requirements or face the possibility of fines and civil actions. In severe cases there could be criminal charges filed against responsible individuals.

If you have any questions on what can be dumped down the drain in your laboratory contact Environmental Health, Safety & Risk Management.
