The Pretreatment Information Exchange (PIX) was originally started in the mid-1990s by pretreatment personnel from the Allentown, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, and Easton wastewater treatment plants. During the 2004-2005 time period, a Lehigh Valley-based industry was ordered to pay a fine to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which subsequently was earmarked as funds for the PIX Group with the understanding it would become a nonprofit incorporation and continue its work with environmental awareness to the people, industry, and regulators of the Lehigh Valley. PIX, Inc. became incorporated as a 501(c)3 association in May 2005. To date, PIX, Inc. has held various seminars with the support of local industries and vendors ranging from local case studies, regulatory updates, innovative pretreatment options, and effects of emerging contaminants.
