This technical development document describes the technical bases for the final Effluent Limitations Guidelines, Pretreatment Standards, and New Source Performance Standards for the Centralized Waste Treatment (CWT) Industry point Source Category. The regulation (40 CFR Part 437) establishes technology-based effluent limitations guidelines and standards to reduce the discharge of pollutants into waters of the United States and into publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) by existing and new facilities that treat or recover hazardous or non-hazardous industrial waste, wastewater, or used material from off- site. Although the numerical effluent limitations and standards are based on specific processes or treatment technologies to control pollutant discharges, EPA does not require dischargers to use these technologies. Individual facilities may meet the numerical requirements using whatever types of treatment technologies, process changes, and waste management practices they choose.
