Dental Dischargers

The Dental Rule (EPA)

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the Dental Rule on June 14, 2017 requiring dental offices that discharge wastewater that contains dental amalgam to the sanitary sewer system to install, inspect, and maintain a dental amalgam separator. The rule applies to dental offices, dental schools, and dental clinics.

New Dental Offices

All new dental offices shall complete and submit a One-Time Compliance Report for Dental Dischargers to Environmental Services. If you have questions, contact Duy Vu, Environmental Manager, at (972) 291-5126, ext. 2819 or via email.
