Description: The addition of sludge dryer to a wastewater treatment unit (WWTU) does not jeopardize the unit exemption as long as the sludge dryer meets the unit definition. Tanks include presses, filters, sumps and processing equipment. WWTU include covers, sludge digesters, thickeners and dryers. A unit meets the WWTU definition even if the discharge is not subject to the CWA. Other tanks in the system must have discharge subject to the CWA. Tanks that volatilize contents can be exempt as a WWTU. Sludge removed from the unit is subject to RCRA.
