Wastewater Treatment

Intergulf maintains a solid waste permit with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for the acceptance of nonhazardous Class 1 & 2 industrial waste and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) characteristic hazardous industrial wastes. Our pretreatment system is designed to accept wastewaters with varying levels of pH, organics, solids, or metals. In compliance with the EPA's centralized waste treatment (CWT) standards, Intergulf segregates incoming wastewater into Subcategory B (Oil) or Subcategory C (Organic) categories. Intergulf also separates wastewaters based upon physical characteristics. Below are categories and characteristics of waste and treatment

Options:

  • EPA CWT Subcategory B (Oil)
  • EPA CWT Subcategory C (Organic)
  • Wastewater with solids
  • Wastewater not amenable for biological treatment

EPA CWT Subcategory B (Oil)

Oily wastewaters are processed through our treatment system, utilizing one or a combination of the following processes: equalization, dissolved air flotation, filter press, pH adjustment, and centrifuge. Effluent water is tested for compliance with EPA discharge parameters before being sent to Gulf Coast Waste Disposal Authority's Bayport facility for final biological treatment.

EPA CWT Subcategory C (Organic)

Organic wastewaters are processed through our treatment system. The effluent waters are monitored and sent to Gulf Coast Waste Disposal Authority's Bayport facility for final biological treatment.

Wastewater with solids

Intergulf is well equipped to handle wastewaters with high levels of solids. Through our stainless steel solids handling unit we can separate heavy solids from the wastewater and then send the water phase through the appropriate treatment system. Residual solids will be sent first through a filter press and then to disposal. Wastewaters from sumps, below-ground pits, or manufacturing processes that may have up to 60% solids flow easily through our system.

Wastewater not amenable for biological treatment

Intergulf's plant is designed to separate and recycle oil, separate solids from water, and pretreat wastewater to be discharged into a biological treatment system. We are also very skilled at disposing of wastes that do not fit into our treatment system. As a courtesy, Intergulf manages many waste streams that are not amenable for wastewater biological treatment. Whether they are high in non-RCRA metals, high in nitrogen, or high in nonhazardous pesticides/herbicides, we can effectively and responsibly manage these streams for many customers.
