The document and the administrative record provide the technical basis for proposing effluent limitations guidelines for existing direct dischargers, pretreatment standards for new and existing indirect dischargers, and standards of performance for new source direct dischargers. This category is made up of 3600 plants employing people. Nine hundred sixty five of these plants use wet processing methods which can generate wastewaters. Of the 965 plants, 287 discharge directly to rivers, lakes, or streams; 327 discharge to publicly owned treatment works (POTW); and 351 achieve zero discharge of process wastewaters.
