The development document presents the technical data base developed by EPA to support effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the Gold Placer Mining Subcategory of the Ore Mining and Dressing Point Source Category. The Clean Water Act (CWA) designates various levels of technology as the basis for effluent limitations: best practicable technology (BPT), best available technology economically achievable (BAT), best conventional pollutant control technology (BCT), and best available demonstrated technology (BDT). Effluent limitations guidelines based on the application of BPT, BAT, and BCT are to be achieved by existing sources. New source performance standards (NSPS) based on BDT are to be achieved by new facilities.
