"This document presents the findings of an extensive study of the Machinery and Mechanical Products Manufacturing industries for the purpose of developing effluent limitations and pretreatment standards for existing point sources and standards of performance and pretreatment standards for new sources to implement Sections 304, 306 and 307 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended (33 U.S.C. 1551, 1314, and 1316, 86 Stat. 816 et. seq.). Effluent limitations contained herein set forth the degree of pollutant reduction attainable through the application of the best practicable control technology currently available (BPT) and the degree of pollutant reduction attainable through the application of the best available technology economically achievable (BAT) which must be achieved by existing point sources by July 1, 1977, and July 1, 1983, respectively The standards of performance' and pretreatment standards for new source; contained herein set forth the degree of effluent reduction which is achievable through the application of the best available demonstrated control technology, processes, operating methods, or other alternative Eased upon the application of the best practicable control technology currently available, 1 of the 12 subcategories for which separate limitations are proposed can be operated with no discharge of process wastewater. With the best available technology economically achievable, 10 of the 12 subcategories for which separate limitations are proposed can be operated with no discharge of process wastewater to navigable waters. No discharge of process wastewater pollutants is also achievable as a new source performance standard for 11 of the 12 subcategories . Supporting data and rationale for development of the proposed effluent limitation guidelines and standards of performance are contained in this report."--Abstract.
