40 CFR 413.02 - General definitions.
In addition to the definitions set forth in 40 CFR part 401 and the chemical analysis methods set forth in 40 CFR part 136, both of which are incorporated herein by reference, the following definitions apply to this part:
(d) The term electroplating process wastewater shall mean process wastewater generated in operations which are subject to regulation under any of subparts A through H of this part.
(e) The term total metal is defined as the sum of the concentration or mass of Copper (Cu), Nickel (Ni), Chromium (Cr) (total) and Zinc (Zn).
(f) The term strong chelating agents is defined as all compounds which, by virtue of their chemical structure and amount present, form soluble metal complexes which are not removed by subsequent metals control techniques such as pH adjustment followed by clarification or filtration.
(g) The term control authority is defined as the POTW if it has an approved pretreatment program; in the absence of such a program, the NPDES State if it has an approved pretreatment program or EPA if the State does not have an approved program.
(h) The term integrated facility is defined as a facility that performs electroplating as only one of several operations necessary for manufacture of a product at a single physical location and has significant quantities of process wastewater from non-electroplating manufacturing operations. In addition, to qualify as an “integrated facility” one or more plant electroplating process wastewater lines must be combined prior to or at the point of treatment (or proposed treatment) with one or more plant sewers carrying process wastewater from non-electroplating manufacturing operations.
(i) the term TTO shall mean total toxic organics, which is the summation of all quantifiable values greater than 0.01 milligrams per liter for the following toxic organics:
Carbon tetrachloride (tetrachloromethane)
Bis (2-chloroethyl) ether
2-chloroethyl vinyl ether (mixed)
4-chlorophenyl phenyl ether
4-bromophenyl phenyl ether
Bis (2-chloroisopropyl) ether
Bis (2-chloroethoxy) methane
Methylene chloride (dichloromethane)
Methyl chloride (chloromethane)
Methyl bromide (bromomethane)
Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate
Butyl benzyl phthalate
Indeno (1,2,3-cd) pyrene)
Vinyl chloride (chloroethylene)
Chlordane (technical mixture and metabolites)
