This manual provides guidance to municipalities on the development and implementation of local controls or limits on discharges to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). This manual replaces the Guidance Manual on the Development and Implementation of Local Discharge Limitations Under the Pretreatment Program issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in December 1987. The audience for this manual is the POTW personnel responsible for local pretreatment program implementation. The manual provides practical technical assistance and reasoned guidance on the following: Determining pollutants of concern (POCs); Collecting and analyzing data; Calculating maximum allowable headworks loadings (MAHLs) for each POC; Designating and implementing local limits; Performing local limits reviews and re-evaluations; and developing local limits to address concerns about collection systems.
