A study of the Phosphate Fertilizer subcategory of the Fertilizer Manufacturing point source category was conducted. The purpose of the study was to update best available technology (BAT), investigate the presence of priority and criteria pollutants, and to review treatment technologies and Best Management Practices (BMPs) currently used by the industry. The study included literature review, plant visits, and sampling studies. Based on the results of the study, recommendations are made regarding regulation of priority pollutants, further regulation of criteria pollutants, and development of BMPs. The general conclusion is that further study or additional regulation of the industry is not warranted.
