The following additional effluent limitations apply to each discharger subject to this section in accordance with the previous subcatgorization scheme unless it certifies to the permitting authority that it is not using these compounds as biocides. Also, for non-continuous dischargers, concentration limitations (mg/l) shall apply. Concentration limitations will only apply to non-continuous dischargers:
Pollutant or pollutant property | Maximum for any 1 day | |
---|---|---|
kg/kkg (or pounds per 1,000 lb) of product | Milligrams/liter | |
Pentachlorophenol | 0.00058exp(0.017x) | ((0.011)(12.67)exp(0.017x))/y |
Trichlorophenol | 0.0036exp(0.017x) | ((0.068)(12.67)exp(0.017x))/y |
x = percent sulfite pulp in final product. | ||
y = wastewater discharged in kgal per ton of product. |
(c)
Pursuant to 40 CFR 122.44(i) and 122.45(h), a discharger must demonstrate compliance with the limitations in paragraphs (a)(2) or (a)(3) of this section, as applicable, by monitoring for all pollutants (except for AOX and COD) at the point where the wastewater containing those pollutants leaves the bleach plant. The permitting authority may impose effluent limitations and/or monitoring requirements on internal wastestreams for any other pollutants covered in this section as appropriate under 40 CFR 122.44(i) and 122.45(h).
