Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority Inland Empire Brine Line The inland Empire Brine Line is an effective and economical way to dispose of salty wastewater, which is sometimes produced though manufacturing and water treatment processes. Salt removal is important for protecting water quality and meeting regulatory requirements. Like much of the Inland Empire, wastewater treatment plants in inland areas have total dissolved solids (TDS) restrictions, which may prevent your industry from discharging its waste to the municipal sewer. The Brine Line removes 500,000 pounds of salt per day from the watershed by transporting salty wastewater to a wastewater treatment plant operated by the Orange County Sanitation District. After treatment, the water is discharged into the Pacific Ocean. With the Brine Line, businesses can now dispose of salty wastewater locally at a substantial cost savings, without trucking it outside of the region.
