Regulatory proposal R76-21 which is being considered by the Illinois Pollution Control Board, includes a revision of the present effluent pH standard of 5.0 to 10.0 units to a more restrictive limitation of 6.0 to 9.0 units, to be met at all times without averaging. This change would achieve uniformity with U.S. EPA effluent guidelines for which the economics and technology have been well established.
