The purpose of this Technical Development Document is to provide record support for the proposed Existing Facilities rule and to describe the methods used by EPA to analyze various options. The goal of the proposed regulation is to establish national requirements for cooling water intake structures at existing facilities that implement Section 316(b) of the CWA. Section 316(b) of the CWA provides that any standard established pursuant to Section 301 or 306 of the CWA and applicable to a point source must require that the location, design, construction, and capacity of cooling water intake structures reflect the best technology available (BTA) for minimizing adverse environmental impact.
