The purpose of the report is to present an assessment of the water quality benefits of controlling the discharge of priority and nonconventional pollutants from centralized waste treatment facilities to surface waters and publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs). Potential aquatic life and human health impacts of direct discharges on receiving stream water quality and of indirect discharges on POTWs and their receiving streams are projected at current, proposed BPT/BAT (Best Practicable Control Technology/Best Available Technology) and proposed PSES (Pretreatment Standards for Existing Sources) levels by quantifying pollutant releases and by using stream modeling techniques. In addition, EPA Regional and State Pretreatment Coordinators were contacted and State 304(1) Short Lists are reviewed for evidence of documented environmental impacts on aquatic life, human health, and POTW operations and for impacts on the quality of receiving water.
