Some common pollutants from the pool services industry include:
Runoff (stormwater and non-stormwater) from the pool services industry can be a major source of these pollutants, and once released, these harmful pollutants can be transported to our City and County channels and the ocean.
HERE ARE TIPS FOR THE POOL SERVICES INDUSTRY TO HELP KEEP OUR WATERWAYS CLEAN:
It is preferred that pool and spa water is discharged to the sanitary sewer. However, pool and spa water may be discharged to the storm drain if residual chlorine is less than 0.1 mg/L, the pH is between 6.5 and 8.5, and the water is free of any unusual coloration, dirt, or algae. Control the volume, avoid high flows of pool water to discharge in order to prevent the areas from flooding. Call 714-536-5431 to obtain more information.
