Use of Market-based Allocations to Meet Local Limits for Pretreatment: A report in Support of Clean Water Act Reauthorization

This study focuses on the use of market-based allocations by publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs) to establish local limits for indirect industrial dischargers. The study assumes that the existing categorical standards would remain in place, and that market-based allocations could be used only in cases where the local limits established by the POTW are more stringent that the categorical standards, or ewhere local limits address pollutants not covered by the categorical requirements.
