This document presents the findings of studies of the pesticide chemical manufacturing point source category for the purpose of developing effluent limitations guidelines for existing point sources to implement Sections 301(b) and 304(b) and of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act as amended (33 U.S.C. 1251 and 1314(b) and 86 Stat. 816 et. seq.) (the 'Act'). Effluent limitations guidelines contained herein represent the application of the Best Practicable Control Technology Currently Available (BPT) as required by section 301(c) of the Act. The pesticide chemicals manufacturing point source category is divided into three subcategories on the basis of the characteristics of the manufacturing processes involved and the types of products produced. The three subcategories are: the organic pesticide chemical subcategory, the metallo-organic pesticide chemical subcategory and the pesticide chemical formulation and packaging subcategory. Cost estimates have been developed for model treatment systems which are capable of attaining the effluent limitations. Supporting data and rationale for development of the effluent limitations are contained in this report and supporting file records.
