40 CFR 430.26 - Pretreatment standards for existing sources (PSES).

§ 430.26 Pretreatment standards for existing sources (PSES).
Except as provided in 40 CFR 403.7 and 403.13, any existing source subject to this subpart that introduces pollutants into a publicly owned treatment works must comply with 40 CFR part 403 and must achieve the following pretreatment standards for existing sources (PSES).
(a)
(1) The following pretreatment standards apply with respect to each fiber line operated by an indirect discharger subject to this section, unless the indirect discharger discloses to the pretreatment control authority in a report submitted under 40 CFR 403.12(b) that it uses exclusively TCF bleaching processes at that fiber line. These pretreatment standards must be attained on or before April 16, 2001:
Subpart B
Pollutant or pollutant property PSES
Maximum for any 1 day Monthlyaverage
a “<ML” means less than the minimum level specified in § 430.01(i) for the particular pollutant.
b This regulation does not specify this type of limitation for this pollutant; however, pretreatment control authorities may do so as appropriate.
c Picograms per liter.
d Grams per 1,000 kilograms (g/kkg).
e Kilograms per 1,000 kilograms (kg/kkg).
TCDD <ML a (b)
TCDF 31.9 c (b)
Chloroform 6.92 d d 4.14
Trichlorosyringol <ML a (b)
3,4,5-trichlorocatechol <ML a (b)
3,4,6-trichlorocatechol <ML a (b)
3,4,5-trichloroguaiacol <ML a (b)
3,4,6-trichloroguaiacol <ML a (b)
4,5,6-trichloroguaiacol <ML a (b)
2,4,5-trichlorophenol <ML a (b)
2,4,6-trichlorophenol <ML a (b)
Tetrachlorocatechol <ML a (b)
Tetrachloroguaiacol <ML a (b)
2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol <ML a (b)
Pentachlorophenol <ML a (b)
AOX 2.64 e e 1.41
(2) The following pretreatment standards apply with respect to each fiber line operated by an indirect discharger subject to this section if the indirect discharger discloses to the pretreatment control authority in a report submitted under 40 CFR 403.12(b), (d), or (e) that it uses exclusively TCF bleaching processes at that fiber line. These pretreatment standards must be attained on or before April 16, 2001:
Subpart B
Pollutant or pollutant parameter PSES (TCF)
Maximum for any 1 day Monthlyaverage
a “<ML” means less than the minimum level specified in § 430.01(i) for the particular pollutant.
b This regulation does not specify this type of limitation for this pollutant; however, pretreatment control authorities may do so as appropriate.
AOX <ML a (b)
(b) The following pretreatment standards apply to all indirect dischargers, in accordance with the previous subcategorization scheme. An indirect discharger is not required to meet these pretreatment standards if it certifies to the pretreatment control authority that it is not using these compounds as biocides. In cases when POTWs find it necessary to impose mass effluent limitations, equivalent mass limitations are provided as guidance:
Subpart B
[Supplemental PSES for bleached kraft facilities where market pulp is produced]
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day
kg/kkg (or pounds per 1,000 lb) of product Milligrams/liter
Pentachlorophenol 0.0019 (0.011)(41.6)/y
Trichlorophenol 0.014 (0.082)(41.6)/y
y = wastewater discharged in kgal per ton of product.
Subpart B
[Supplemental PSES for bleached kraft facilities where paperboard, coarse paper, and tissue paper are produced]
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day
kg/kkg (or pounds per 1,000 lb) of product Milligrams/liter
Pentachlorophenol 0.0016 (0.011)(35.4)/y
Trichlorophenol 0.012 (0.082)(35.4)/y
y = wastewater discharged in kgal per ton of product.
Subpart B
[Supplemental PSES for bleached kraft facilities where pulp and fine papers are produced and soda facilities where pulp and paper are produced]
Pollutant or pollutant property Maximum for any 1 day
kg/kkg (or pounds per 1,000 lb) of product Milligrams/liter
Pentachlorophenol 0.0014 (0.011)(30.9)/y
Trichlorophenol 0.011 (0.082)(30.9)/y
y = wastewater discharged in kgal per ton of product
(c) An indirect discharger must demonstrate compliance with the pretreatment standards in paragraph (a)(1) of this section by monitoring at the point where the wastewater containing those pollutants leaves the bleach plant.
