You may want to contact Stan Barnett at the University of Rhode Island

They may be forced to get water permits because of copper problems in the small towns' water treatment systems.  They release to sewer on the average of 50 gallons a day of water.  Has anyone worked with art foundries and heard of any ways they could go to zero discharge on water.  This would allow them to avoid this whole permit issue, which would probably put a number of the smaller art foundries out of business.
