"Wastewater treatment in North America is governed by a complex web of associations, rules, and regulations designed to protect public health and the environment. At the federal level, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plays a pivotal role in setting and enforcing standards for wastewater treatment across the United States. The Clean Water Act, originally enacted in 1972 and subsequently amended, serves as the cornerstone of federal regulations, establishing water quality standards and pollution control measures. In addition to federal oversight, each state in North America has its own environmental agency responsible for implementing and enforcing wastewater treatment regulations that are specific to local conditions and needs. These agencies often collaborate with regional and municipal authorities to ensure compliance with both federal and state standards. Numerous industry associations, such as the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA), also contribute to the sector's development by offering technical expertise, promoting best practices, and facilitating research and innovation. Wastewater treatment facilities are distributed across North America, but certain regions stand out for having some of the highest concentrations of these critical infrastructure assets. In the United States, the densely populated northeast, particularly states like New York and New Jersey, have a significant number of wastewater treatment plants due to their high urbanization levels and the need to manage large volumes of municipal and industrial wastewater. Canada, a significant part of North America, also exhibits concentrations of wastewater treatment facilities in its more populated provinces, such as Ontario and Quebec, as well as in regions with heavy industrial activity, like Alberta.
