The report provides guidance for evaluating the environmental impacts of a proposed fossil fueled steam electric generating station requiring a new source National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to discharge wastewater to the navigable waters of the U.S. The guidelines are intended to assist in the identification of potential impacts, and the information requirements for evaluating such impacts, in an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). An EIA is a document prepared for EPA by a new source permit applicant; it is used by the Agency to determine if the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is warranted for the proposed facility. The report includes guidance on (1) identification of potential wastewater effluents, air emissions, and solid wastes from fossil fueled steam electric generating stations, (2) assessment of the impacts of such residuals on the quality of the environment, (3) state-of-the-art technology for in-process and end-of-process control of waste streams, (4) evaluation of alternatives, and (5) environmental regulations that apply to the industry. In addition, the guidelines include an 'overview' chapter that gives a general description of the fossil fuel power industry, significant problems associated with it, and recent trends in location, raw materials, processes, pollution control, and the demand for industry output.
