The Filter Backwash Recycling Rule (FBRR) establishes regulatory provisions governing the way that certain recycle streams are handled within the treatment processes of conventional and direct filtration water treatment systems. The FBRR also establishes reporting and recordkeeping requirements for recycle practices that will allow States and EPA to better evaluate the impact of recycle practices on overall treatment plant performance. The FBRR published in the Federal Register (66 FR 31086, June 8, 2001) presents the specific regulatory requirements that must be met by affected systems. This document has been developed to provide operators with the practical guidance and relevant information to assist them in complying with the FBRR provisions. It outlines detailed methods for complying with each portion of the FBRR, and provides other useful information regarding recycle practices and filter backwashing not specifically required by the FBRR.
