Join EPA for its Pretreatment 101 Webcast Series

1. EPA is offering a webcast titled, "Overview of Pretreatment Standards" on Tuesday, September 27, 2011, from 1:00-3:00 PM Eastern time. The webcast is intended to inform interested parties who might otherwise be unfamiliar with the requirements of the National Pretreatment Program.

The National Pretreatment Program regulations identify specific requirements that apply to all industrial users, additional requirements that apply to all significant industrial users (SIUs), and certain requirements that apply to only categorical industrial users (CIUs). This webcast will define the 3 types of Pretreatment Standards (general and specific prohibitions, categorical pretreatment standards, and local limits), the users associated with them, and describe how these standards are applied. This is the first part of two webcasts discussing Pretreatment Standards. The second webcast will discuss local limits in more depth.

2. EPA is offering a webcast titled, "Pretreatment Standards - Local Limits Development" on Thursday, September 29, 2011, from 1:00-3:00 PM Eastern time. The webcast is intended for POTW personnel responsible for local pretreatment program implementation.

The National Pretreatment Program regulations identify specific requirements that apply to industrial users. These requirements include 3 types of Pretreatment Standards (general and specific prohibitions, categorical pretreatment standards, and local limits). Of the 3 types of Standards, ?Local Limits? are the Pretreatment Standards that are developed by individual publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). Local limits are designed to prevent the discharge of pollutants that pass through, interfere with, or are otherwise incompatible with the POTWs. The federal regulations at 40 CFR 403.8(f)(4) and 122.44(j)(2)(ii) require POTWs to evaluate the need for local limits and, if necessary, to implement, and enforce specific limits as part of the program activities. This webcast provides an overview of the local limit development process, the implementation of local limits on discharges to POTWs, and the content of a local limit evaluation report. (This is a continuation of the Overview of Pretreatment Standards webcast.)
