Maximum for 1 day (mg/l)
Copper, total 1.0
(c) [Reserved—Nonchemical Metal Cleaning Wastes].
(d)
(1) The pollutants discharged in cooling tower blowdown shall not exceed the concentration listed in the following table:
Pollutant or pollutant property PSES pretreatment standards

The 126 priority pollutants (Appendix A) contained in chemicals added for cooling tower maintenance, except: (1)

(2) At the permitting authority's discretion, instead of the monitoring in 40 CFR 122.11(b), compliance with the limitations for the 126 priority pollutants in paragraph (d)(1) of this section may be determined by engineering calculations which demonstrate that the regulated pollutants are not detectable in the final discharge by the analytical methods in 40 CFR part 136.
