Title:PERMIT-EXEMPT STATUS OF SLUDGE DRYERS ADDED TO WASTEWATER TREATMENT UNITS
RCRA Online Number:12527
Date:01/02/1986
To:Philipp
From:Porter
Organization of Recipient:Water Management, Inc.
Description: A sludge dryer that meets the wastewater treatment unit (WWTU) definition is exempt from permitting. Sludge drying is a treatment. Presses, filters, and sumps may be tanks under the definition of a WWTU. Tanks not discharging under sections 402 or 307(b) of CWA that are part of the wastewater treatment system meet the exemption. WWTU tanks may volatilize their contents and retain the exemption. Sludge dryers can be used to meet the section 3002(b) waste minimization requirements. While the WWTU is exempt from permitting, hazardous waste sludge removed from the unit is subject to regulation.
