EPA Region VIII and the Region VIII Pretreatment Association (R8PA) conjointly developed an annual workshop to address the various needs of municipal pretreatment personnel to implement the pretreatment regulations. Basic to advance pretreatment training, discussions, and presentations will be provided by local, state, and federal government representatives, as well as experts outside the government.
