Waste Water and Residue
8. (1) The owner or operator of a dry-cleaning machine shall
(a) have waste water transported to a waste management facility no less than once every 12 months; or
(b) have waste water treated by the dry-cleaning machine’s or the carbon adsorber’s integral tetrachloroethylene-water separator and an on-site waste water treatment system that contains the following equipment:

(ii) an initial filter containing activated carbon that removes the tetrachloroethylene from the waste water exiting the second tetrachloroethylene-water separator,
(iii) a monitor-alarm that automatically shuts down the waste water treatment system when the initial filter becomes saturated with tetrachloroethylene, and
