§ 413.14 Pretreatment standards for existing sources.
Except as provided in §§ 403.7 and 403.13 of this title, any existing source subject to this subpart which introduces pollutants into a publicly owned treatment works must comply with 40 CFR part 403 and achieve the following pretreatment standards for existing sources (PSES):
(a) No user introducing wastewater pollutants into a publicly owned treatment works under the provisions of this subpart shall augment the use of process wastewater or otherwise dilute the wastewater as a partial or total substitute for adequate treatment to achieve compliance with this standard.
(b) For a source discharging less than 38,000 liters (10,000 gal.) per calendar day of electroplating process wastewater the following limitations shall apply:
Subpart A—Common Metals Facilities Discharging Less Than 38,000 Liters Per Day PSES Limitations (mg/l)
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day Average of daily values for 4 consecutive monitoring days shall not exceed
CN, A 5.0 2.7
Pb .6 .4
Cd 1.2 .7
(c) For plants discharging 38,000 liters (10,000 gal) or more per calendar day of electroplating process wastewater the following limitations shall apply:
Subpart A—Common Metals Facilities Discharging 38,000 Liters or More Per Day PSES Limitations (mg/l)
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day Average of daily values for 4 consecutive monitoring days shall not exceed
CN, T 1.9 1.0
Cu 4.5 2.7
Ni 4.1 2.6
Cr 7.0 4.0
Zn 4.2 2.6
Pb .6 .4
Cd 1.2 .7
Total metals 10.5 6.8
(d) Alternatively, the following mass-based standards are equivalent to and may be applied in place of those limitations specified under paragraph (c) of this section upon prior agreement between a source subject to these standards and the publicly owned treatment works receiving such regulated wastes:
Subpart A—Common Metals Facilities Discharging 38,000 Liters or More Per Day PSES Limitations (mg/sq m-Operation)
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day Average of daily values for 4 consecutive monitoring days shall not exceed
CN, T 74 39
Cu 176 105
Ni 160 100
Cr 273 156
Zn 164 102
Pb 23 16
Cd 47 29
Total metals 410 267
(e) For wastewater sources regulated under paragraph (c) of this section, the following optional control program may be elected by the source introducing treated process wastewater into a publicly owned treatment works with the concurrence of the control authority. These optional pollutant parameters are not eligible for allowance for removal achieved by the publicly owned treatment works under 40 CFR 403.7. In the absence of strong chelating agents, after reduction of hexavalent chromium wastes, and after neutralization using calcium oxide (or hydroxide) the following limitations shall apply:
Subpart A—Common Metals Facilities Discharging 38,000 Liters or More Per Day PSES Limitations (mg/l)
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day Average of daily values for 4 consecutive monitoring days shall not exceed
1Within the range 7.5 to 10.0.
CN, T 1.9 1.0
Pb .6 .4
Cd 1.2 .7
TSS 20.0 13.4
pH 1 1
(f) In addition to paragraphs (a) and (b) the following limitation shall apply for plants discharging less than 38,000 l (10,000 gal) per calendar day of electroplating process wastewater:
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day
Milligrams per liter -(mg/l)
TTO 4.57
(g) In addition to paragraphs (a), (c), (d), and (e) the following limitation shall apply for plants discharging 38,000 1 (10,000 gal) or more per calendar day of electroplating process wastewater:
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day
Milligrams per liter -(mg/l)
TTO 2.13
(h) In addition to paragraphs (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), and (g) the following shall apply: An existing source submitting a certification in lieu of monitoring pursuant to § 413.03 of this regulation must implement the toxic organic management plan approved by the control authority.
