We are interested in getting a variance from the plumbing code requirement for installation of Acid Neutralization Tanks for our lab buildings. I would like to hear from others who have been successful in eliminating these tanks from their campus'.  Please reply to this post or feel free to contact me off-line at nelsost**At_Symbol_Here** . I'd like to find out what strategy was used and what data if any was developed.

Also, I seem to recall a study that one institution did on their lab building waste water effluent.  If anyone has a copy or can point me in the right direction I would be grateful.

Best regards,
