Brine LineThe Inland Empire Brine Line is an effective and economical means for customers to dispose of salty waste water. Like much of the Inland Empire, Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) in inland areas have salt restrictions which may prevent your industry from discharging its waste to the sanitary sewer. The Inland Empire Brine Line transports this salty waste water to a treatment plant in Orange County.
