Description
 
Under the Clean Water Act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made significant progress in reducing wastewater pollution from industrial facilities. EPA currently regulates 58 industrial categories, such as petroleum refining, fertilizer manufacturing, and coal mining, with technology-based regulations called effluent guidelines. Such guidelines are applied in permits to limit the pollutants that facilities may discharge. The Clean Water Act also calls for EPA to revise the guidelines when appropriate. EPA has done so, for ex., to reflect advances in treatment technology or changes in industries. This report examines (1) the process EPA follows to screen and review industrial categories potentially needing new or revised guidelines and the results of that process from 2003 through 2010; (2) limitations to this process, if any, that could hinder EPAńˇ╗s effectiveness in advancing the goals of the Clean Water Act; and (3) EPAńˇ╗s actions to address any such limitations. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
