RCRA Online Number:11173

To:Blackburn
From:Lehman
Organization of Recipient:Travenol Laboratories, Inc.
Description: An elementary neutralization unit (ENU) or wastewater treatment unit (WWTU) can be a series of connected units. A flume, gutter, pipe, or open channel may be defined as a tank. WWTU wastewater is water with few percent contaminants (SUPERSEDED: See RPC# 2/11/91-01, RPC# 6/2/93-04). Pouring characteristic hazardous waste (HW) into an industrial sewer drain pipe where HW mixes with wastewaters is not treatment as the dilution is incidental to the pipe's primary purpose of conveyance (SEE ALSO: 268.3). An open channel in an enclosed building is not a totally enclosed treatment unit (TETU). HW subject to substantive regulation is counted for generator category determination. HW piped directly into an ENU and CWA sewer discharge is not counted. The 261.3(a)(2)(iv) de minimis mixture rule exemption is only for listed HW mixtures, not characteristic mixtures.
