The City of Riverside, on a case by case basis, may consider incentives over $150,000/year/customer for new facilities installing pretreatment equipment that is above and beyond what is required to meet City Local Limits. These projects would follow the SBP process for consideration and, if approved by the program administrator would require concurrence with the Public Works Director and then would require City Council approval.
