Pursuant to Sections 301, 304, 306, 307, and 501 of the Clean Water Act and the provisions of the Settlement Agreement in Natural Resources Defense Council v. Train, 8 ERC 2120 (D.D.C. 1976) modified, 12 ERC 1833 (D.D.C. 1979), EPA has collected and analyzed data for plants in the Copper Forming Point Source Category. EPA has never proposed or promulgated effluent limitations or standards for the industry. The document and the administrative record provide the technical basis for proposing effluent limitations based on best practicable technology (BPT) and best available technology (BAT) for existing direct dischargers, pretreatment standards for existing indirect dischargers (PSES), pretreatment standards for new indirect dischargers (PSNS), and standards of performance for new source direct dischargers (NSPS). The copper forming category is comprised of 176 plants. Of the 176 plants, 37 discharge directly to rivers, lakes, or streams; 45 discharge to publicly owned treatment works (POTW); and 94 achieve zero discharge of process wastewater.
