B. Summary of Preliminary Effluent
Guidelines Program Plan 15.
C. Request for Public Comments and
Information.
A. Legal Authority
This notice is published under the
authority of the CWA, 33 U.S.C. 1251,
et seq., and in particular sections 301(d),
304(b), 304(g), 304(m), 306, 307(b) and
308 of the Act, 33 U.S.C. 1311(d),
1314(b), 1314(g), 1314(m), 1316,
1317(b), and 1318.
B. Summary of Preliminary Effluent
Guidelines Program Plan 15
EPA prepares Preliminary Effluent
Guidelines Program Plans pursuant to
CWA section 304(m). Preliminary plans
provide a summary of the EPA’s annual
review of effluent limitations guidelines
and pretreatment standards, consistent
with CWA sections 301(d), 304(b),
304(g), 304(m), and 307(b). From these
reviews, preliminary plans identify any
new or existing industrial categories
selected for effluent limitations
guidelines or pretreatment standards
rulemakings and provide a schedule for
such rulemakings. In addition,
preliminary plans present any new or
existing categories of industry selected
for further review and analysis.
Preliminary Plan 15 discusses EPA’s
2020 annual review of effluent
limitations guidelines and pretreatment
standards, presents its preliminary
review of specific categories identified
through the review, provides an update
on the analyses and tools that EPA is
continuing to develop, and discusses
several new and ongoing rulemaking
actions.
EPA is initiating three new
rulemakings after concluding several
studies that were discussed in Plan 14.
After several years of collecting and
analyzing data, EPA has concluded that
revision of the following effluent
limitations guidelines or pretreatment
standards are warranted:
1. Meat and Poultry Products point-
source category to address nutrient
discharges (see Section 6.2 of the
preliminary plan for additional
details)
2. Organic Chemicals, Plastics &
Synthetic Fibers point-source category
to address Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl
Substances (PFAS) discharges (see
Section 6.4 of the preliminary plan for
additional details)
3. Metal Finishing point-source category
to address PFAS discharges (see
Section 6.4 of the preliminary plan for
additional details)
Preliminary Plan 15 also discusses the
Steam Electric Generating category
rulemaking that the agency announced
on July 26, 2020. At that time, EPA
announced that the agency was
initiating a rulemaking process to
strengthen certain wastewater pollution
discharge limits for coal power plants
that use steam to generate electricity.
See Section 7.1 of the preliminary plan
for additional details.
Finally, Preliminary Plan 15 provides
updates on ongoing point source
category studies of the electrical and
electronic components category and the
Multi-Industry PFAS study and explains
the agency’s intention to take no further
action on oil and gas extraction
wastewater management. It also
discusses the initial results from EPA’s
review for the metal products and
machinery, explosives manufacturing,
canned and preserved seafood, sugar
processing, soap and detergent
manufacturing, and landfill point source
categories.
Preliminary Plan 15 can be found at
http://www.epa.gov/eg/effluent-
guidelines-plan.
C. Request for Public Comments and
Information
EPA requests comments and
information on the overall content of
Preliminary Plan 15. In particular, EPA
requests comments on the
announcements regarding ongoing
studies and rulemaking activities (see
Sections 6 and 7 of the plan for
additional details), and the topics
below. See Preliminary Plan 15 for more
information on these issues.
1. Reviews of Industrial Wastewater
Discharges and Treatment Technologies.
EPA solicits feedback on the cross-
category rankings analysis. To the extent
that any comment advocates for a
revision to existing effluent limitations
guidelines (ELGs), the commenter
should explain why EPA should
prioritize these point source categories
ahead of the ones that EPA is studying
and revising.
2. Membrane Wastewater Treatment
Technology.
EPA solicits comment on the
capabilities, performance, and costs of
membrane treatment technologies for
industrial wastewater to support the
membrane technology review.
3. Environmental Justice.
EPA solicits comment on how best to
incorporate environmental justice into
the ELG planning process.
4. PFAS Multi-Industry Study.
EPA solicits feedback on the findings
of the Multi-Industry PFAS study,
specifically findings from the pulp and
paper manufacturers and commercial
airports.
