The Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 (PL 92-500) require the attainment of minimum effluent limitations by all dischargers to the nation's waters. For publicly owned treatment works (POTW's) these limitations are based on achieving secondary treatment removal levels. After the enactment of PL 92-500, substantial reservations were expressed on the need for secondary treatment of municipal discharges to the ocean. Responding to these reservations, the EPA Administrator authorized a Task Force to report its findings and recommendations.
