Title:PERMIT REQUIREMENTS FOR ZERO WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM
RCRA Online Number:11408
Date:03/20/1989
To:Elliott
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:Zerpol Corp.
Description: A "zero discharge" wastewater system must have NPDES permit, applicable effluent guideline, or pretreatment standard specifying zero discharge to qualify as wastewater treatment unit (WWTU). A zero discharge system returning all treated water to production avoids CWA rules but does not automatically qualify for the totally enclosed treatment unit (TETU) exemption. A wastewater treatment system using open tanks and not restricting escape of contaminant to air is not a TETU. Illegal discharge of hazardous waste to river may be "subject to" CWA and eligible for industrial discharge exclusion, although discharge is a CWA violation subject to EPA enforcement action.
